    Great Britain’s fourth seed Alfie Hewett’s defeat by Dutchman Tom Egberink was the biggest upset of the British Open second round in Nottingham.

    The British Wheelchair Tennis Championships are in their 30th year and part of the Super Series - a six-event international wheelchair tennis tour.

    Some of the world's best players will be taking part in the tournament, which is played on hard, outdoor courts at Nottingham Tennis Centre.

    Britain's Andy Lapthorne, who lost in the final last year, is top seed in the men's quad singles.

    Other Brits to watch out for include Gordon Reid and Jordanne Whiley in the singles, while Reid and partner Alfie Hewett are third seeds in the men's doubles.

    Argentina's Gustavo Fernandez is top seed in the men's singles, while Netherlands' reigning champion Diede de Groot will be hoping to defend her crown in the women's singles.

  4. What is wheelchair tennis?

    Wheelchair tennis can be played on any regular tennis court with normal racquets and balls.

    The rules are the same as tennis except the ball is allowed to bounce twice - only the first bounce has to be inside the court.

    There is also a quad division for players with an impairment to three limbs or more.

    The LTA caters for and champions wheelchair tennis, and also offers subsidised camps featuring learning-disability, deaf and visually-impaired tennis.

    At whatever level you wish to take part, sport and physical activity can be an enjoyable lifestyle choice.

    Physical activity has a number of health benefits including helping to maintain a healthy weight, lowering high blood pressure and boosting the immune system, as well as boosting self-confidence and preventing depression.

    In the past, it may have been difficult to find a local sports club that could cater for individual needs, but nowadays nearly all sports have options or variations for disabled people and many clubs can accommodate people regardless of physical limitations.

    The Activity Alliance can direct you to numerous participation opportunities and programmes including information on different sports in your local area. For other areas of the UK, visit Disability Sport Wales, Disability Sports NI, or Scottish Disability Sport.
