Inspiring story of a woman tennis player, who is blind
Wendy Glasper is a visually impaired woman who set up one of the first tennis clubs for blind and partially sighted people in Darlington in England.
Wendy was born blind and discovered the game ten years ago.
Since then, she has set up many visually impaired tennis sessions across the region.
Wendy is now a coach and is also known for finishing fourth in an international tournament.
What is interesting is Wendy has been selected to attend the respected ‘Women of the Year’ Awards in London.
Wendy is among four hundred guests selected to go to the ceremony.
The awards function celebrates extraordinarily talented women and those who have made a difference.
Wendy is being recognized for her work to promote the sport, which is played with a sponge ball and a rattle inside it.
