The wheelchair champs have also been helping to nurture the grassroots of the sport across the UK.
Alfie Hewett OBE and Gordon Reid OBE are two of Britain’s greatest-ever tennis players, both of whom have won numerous Grand Slam titles. The four-time Wimbledon doubles champions are currently competing in The Championships 2023, of which Vodafone is the Official Connectivity Partner. Their profiles as sporting role models, as well as their achievements on court, has led to their ambassador roles with Vodafone and becoming the faces of the #FeelTheConnection Summer campaign.
The two tennis stars are also working with Vodafone to help promote Play Your Way to Wimbledon, powered by Vodafone, a grassroots tennis competition with regional qualifiers held across the country. Play Your Way to Wimbledon has, for the first time in 2023, opened up the tournament to Visual Impairment, Learning Disability and Wheelchair categories.
