Play Your Way to Wimbledon, powered by Vodafone, and its inclusive categories will be back in 2024 following record participation across 2023.
Play Your Way to Wimbledon (PYWTW), powered by Vodafone, will return in 2024. PYWTW, the UK’s largest mass participation tennis competition, saw record participation in 2023 with 14,500 players taking part across 1,500 events across the UK. The 2023 competition saw the introduction of wheelchair, visually impaired and learning disability categories.
Winners of county and regional finals go onto the contest’s national finals on Wimbledon’s Aorangi Courts. PYWTW is part of Vodafone’s partnership with The Championships. During 2023, this included activities such as using 5G to help the visually impaired experience live sport alongside their friends and family.
Alfie Hewett OBE, men’s wheelchair tennis world No 1 and Vodafone ambassador, said: “It’s fantastic to see Vodafone’s continued commitment to making Play Your Way to Wimbledon inclusive to as many people as possible. It was amazing to see so many new participants at last year’s competition thanks to the addition of adult, wheelchair, visually impaired and learning disability tennis categories and I’m looking forward to seeing even more in 2024.”
