Turkish delight for wheelchair ambassadors
Great Britain won the BNP Paribas World Team Cup title last Friday (24 May) in Antalya, Turkey after Taverners ambassador Alfie Hewett and Lauren Jones combined to beat Spain 2-1 in thrilling circumstances.
“Neither of us will forget this. It’s my fourth World Team Cup and after only getting one bronze medal before this, the one that we won last year, it’s tremendous,” said Alfie.
Alfie and Lauren were cheered on by their team captain Ash Smith and 12-year-old team mate Luz Esperanza Merry, pictured (centre) with Alfie and Lauren. Esperanza’s Taverners sports wheelchair has helped her begin on the pathway to Paralympic glory.
