It’s love all, as Excalibur serves support to Paralympian
Communications and IT firm Excalibur is helping Swindon Paralympian Louise Hunt up her game – with the donation of a laptop.
Tennis ace Louise – who is ranked 19th in the world for singles, and 12th for doubles – travels the world competing in tournaments.
But alongside serves and returns, post-match analysis is a vital part of Louise’s training. Matches are recorded live and watched back to ascertain the best shots and body positioning to improve on the next one.
The laptop will allow Louise to analyse her game at any time, and in any location.
Louise, who won the doubles with German partner Katharina Kruger at the USTA/ITF Fab-U-Life Desert Classic in Tucson, Arizona this weekend, and was runner-up in the singles competition, said: “I would like to thank Excalibur for their support, it’s really going to make a massive difference in my performance as it’s crucial for me to be able to thoroughly analyse every game in my own time.
“It’s how I’m able to improve after every tournament and hopefully gain even higher rankings. It’s also going to brilliant to be able to speak to everyone back home too as I’m away so much. Plus I can catch up with my psychologist and fitness instructor who are all based here.”
Excalibur CEO James Phipps said: “I met Louise a year or so back and her dedication to the sport is outstanding. Her personality and enthusiasm is clear when you meet her and I really wanted to get involved and do what we could to help.
“She’s doing extremely well already and I know the laptop is going to allow her to up her game, we’re looking forward to seeing her rise to new heights in her career.”
