ABOUT LUCY


Lucy Shuker is a Paralympic Wheelchair Tennis player who made history at the London 2012 Paralympic Games alongside Jordanne Whiley winning Great Britain’s first ever women’s wheelchair tennis medal.

Currently ranked World No. #7, Lucy started playing wheelchair tennis in 2001 following a motorbike accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. She has gone on to represent Great Britain at both the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Paralympics and was the first Brit to contest the wheelchair tennis events at all four Grand Slams when she played in New York in 2013.

Her other notable achievements include winning the Vitalise Women of Achievement Award in 2011, British Disability Player of the Year 2012 and the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Player Choice Award in 2007 which was voted for by all the players on the world wheelchair tennis tour.

Following her appearance at the Australian Open, Lucy now has a fantastic opportunity to achieve a Gold Medal in Rio alongside her doubles partner Jordanne Whiley. Wimbledon Debentures are delighted to be supporting her on her Road to Rio. For all the latest news check out LucyShuker.com.
