About

Greg Slade is the current British No.2 quad singles player on the wheelchair tennis rankings. When he was younger he used to play tennis on his feet with his parents before discovering wheelchair tennis sessions at Sutton Tennis Academy when he was 14. In 2017, aged 15, he played his first junior tournament during the British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships in Nottingham before going on to win his first National Championships later that year.

He made his international debut for Great Britain in 2019 when he was selected for the junior team that won the silver medal at the World Team Cup in Israel, before making his senior Great Britain debut as part of the quad team selected for the 2021 World Team Cup in Sardinia, where Slade became an LTA Colour Holder.

His career highlights also include winning the quad doubles at the Bolton Indoor ITF 2 alongside British No.1 Andy Lapthorne.

Tennis beginnings

Tennis has been in Slade's family for multiple generations. He used to play on his feet as a hobby and wanted to play more, so first got in a wheelchair to play in 2016 at Sutton Tennis Academy and hasn't looked back since. The competitive and individual nature of the sport matches up well to his personality.

He didn't need to try any other sports before he knew tennis was for him and wanted to go professional because of his love of the sport and knew he'd regret it if he didn't go for it!
