A huge thanks to Odette Battarel who shared this new link with us!

Odette who just happens to ranked 3rd in B3 Women, was instrumental in the development of the sport in the UK. Odette with her friend and Metro trustee, Amanda Green, where the first to bring Blind Tennis to the UK back in 2007. Now, after a lot of hard work by many, including our amazing coaches and volunteers, it is now integrated into the LTA yearly programme of events with national and international competitions for all to enjoy and take part in.
