On 14th September 2016, Louise was invited to deliver on the LTA Tennis Northern Coaches conference. The session was titled ‘Inclusive Coaching’ and the workshops were designed to be practical, demonstrating how adapting or modifying equipment and activities can provide a fully inclusive environment - ensuring sport is for all.
Over 80 coaches took part, experiencing the use of a wide variety of equipment, aimed at finding their creative side. Coaches were introduced to basic wheelchair maintenance and gained an understanding of how the chair moves. Sim specs were also used to enhance the learning experience, in order to understand the difficulties faced by people with sight problems.
