Wheelchair Repair Gets a New Friend Rolling

From March 28th to April 1st, Roger Scott Tennis Center hosted the 9th Annual Pensacola Open Wheelchair Tennis Championship Tournament. Welcoming 140 competitors from 21 countries, it’s one of the largest tournaments in the US.
Great Britain competitor, Kevin Simpson ran into a bit of trouble before he even hit the courts on Thursday. The airlines had accidentally damaged his wheelchair in transit, so our friend Dave Henderson (a tourney volunteer) brought Kevin to our shop for some help.
After some tinkering, swearing, adjusting, attaching, more swearing and a little more adjusting, our skilled fabricators got Kevin back in his wheelchair & ready to hit the courts!
Congrats on your performance Kevin, we hope to see you next year!

  1. Nice writing as usual, Leigh. Man that is a sweet looking wheelchair. Apparently it’s called a “sports wheelchair”. Of course.
