Emma Raducanu made tennis history at the US Open in the women’s singles – not just for the UK, but for the whole world as the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam tournament. A new tennis star is here, and if you want to celebrate her victory then you’ll be pleased to hear that there is an official homecoming celebration.
Joining Raducanu in the celebrations will be Joe Salisbury, the first Brit to win two doubles titles at a Grand Slam, as well as wheelchair doubles team Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett, who have become the first men to win all four wheelchair Grand Slam doubles titles in the same year.
The event will include interviews with all the winners and a whole host of tennis-themed activities, with aims to inspire the next generation of players within the sport. If you’d like to know when and how to tune in, then we have everything you need to know.
