Paul Regan, Team Manager of the GB Wheelchair Tennis World Team Cup Team, today announced his players to compete in the BNP Paribas World Team Cup in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 21 – 27 May.
Great Britain will be competing in the highest tiers across the competition.
The teams will be:
Men’s World Group 1 – captained by Karen Ross
• Gordon Reid
• Marc McCarroll
• David Phillipson
• Alex Jewitt
Women’s World Group – captained by Geraint Richards
• Jordanne Whiley
• Lucy Shuker
• Louise Hunt
Quad Event – captained by Stuart Wilkinson
• Peter Norfolk
• Andrew Lapthorne
• Jamie Burdekin
Junior Event – captained by Ash Smith

After recently being named the second most successful team in the continent by Tennis Europe, the GB team will be hoping to build on performances last year which saw both the women’s and quad teams pick up a bronze medal.
Paul Regan commented: “With 2012 being such a crucial year for wheelchair tennis, the World Team Cup gives the players a great opportunity to come together and compete as a team ahead of the London 2012 Paralympics.
“We have selected our strongest team and I am confident the players will do GB proud in Korea.”
