My journey in tennis started when I was just 6 years old at a small tennis club in stony stratford, I have been faced with many problems like so many people. When I was just 8 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, controlling your sugars is a task in itself and I now play tennis using an insulin pump and a continuous blood glucose meter.
I would like to thank the NHS for continuing to help by giving me the opportunity to try new methods and the coaching team at Milton Keynes Tennis Club, Dominic Ross- Hurst, Alex Sheehan, and Steve Sumpter and anyone else I have forgot to mention for helping me keep me on the right path. My goal is to achieve a professional ranking within 2 years, my main reason for this is to show other people with diabetes that no matter what you are faced with you can overcome these problems and achieve them. I have travelled the world playing tennis and I believe now I have the right attitude, hard work and determination to make this goal a reality.

Hi Ladies/Gentlemen, Quick Update. Today I won my first round qualifying match at Paddington Sports Club, went down a double break early in the first set, managed to find some rhythm towards the end of the first set. Strange end to the match as my opponent got defaulted, on to the next one! Paddington is an awesome venue, take a look at the photo below. #oooosh #getooshtrending

About the fundraiser
Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
I am an insulin dependent diabetic and I coach tennis and have competed since I was a teenager. The reason why I want to achieve this goal is to show other children and adults with diabetes is to never give up and to show that you can achieve any realistic goal.
