In 2001, aged 21, Lucy had a motorbike accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. She started playing wheelchair tennis and has since gone on to represent Great Britain at four successive Paralympic Games; Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020.
Lucy made history at the London 2012 Paralympics alongside fellow Brit Jordanne Whiley, becoming the first women to win a medal for Great Britain in wheelchair tennis; the pair came from match point down to secure Bronze in the women's doubles event. Lucy and Jordanne went on to win another Bronze medal at Rio 2016 but made history again in Tokyo, winning a Silver Medal, the best achievement from any women's British pair and seeing them become the first pair to feature on the podium at three successive Paralympic Games.
Named as one of Britain's most influential people with a disability, Lucy recognises the impact that she can have on future generations and is currently enjoying positions as LTA National School Sports Champion for Tennis as well as Chairman of the International Wheelchair Tennis Player Council.
