Let's Talk About Tennis' Classification Issue

• 46 min

As the debate over 'classification' in wheelchair tennis rumbles on, player, journalist and Baseline Media contributor Gemma Stevenson and former Great Britain men’s national coach and ex-ITF wheelchair tennis manager Mark Bullock discuss the wheelchair tennis landscape with host Andrew Raeburn.   Gemma explains the IPC’s revised classifications and how it will create a glass ceiling which will prevent some players from competing at an international level, including a number of Paralympians.   Mark expresses his concerns over how it will impact the growth of wheelchair tennis but foresees a time when wheelchair and non-disabled players might compete together.
