WANBOROUGH wheelchair tennis player Louise Hunt has been selected in the Great Britain squad for next week’s BNP Paribas World Team Cup.

Hunt is in a 14-strong GB team for the competition in Ramat Hasharon, Israel, which gets under way on Monday.

The 27-year-old, who competed at both the London and Rio Paralympic Games, will compete in the women’s event alongside Jordanne Whiley, Lucy Shuker and Cornelia Oosthuizen.

Hunt was part of the GB team to win a bronze medal in the women’s competition last year.

Great Britain has a long history of success in the World Team Cup, winning the men’s competition in 2015 and adding a silver last medal last year alongside the bronze won in the women’s event.

GB also won a World Team Cup quad title for the fifth time in 2017.

LTA disability performance director Hammond said: “We have selected an extremely strong squad for the 2019 BNP Paribas World Team Cup consisting of players from the LTA’s GB Wheelchair Tennis World Class Performance Programme and Junior Futures Potential Programme and I am confident that we have a talented and well-prepared group of players that will do Great Britain proud once again.

“We have a strong tradition of medal success in all events and a proven track record of several of our former junior team medallists progressing through to help Great Britain win medals in the senior events in futures years. It’s great to have Jordanne Whiley back in the women’s team after the birth of her son in 2018 and we are also delighted to give Corenelia Oozthuizen her first World Team Cup experience as her wheelchair tennis pathway continues on from her medal success at the 2017 Invictus Games.”
