Aidan will participate in the AO PWII Championships which will bring together some of the top ranked players in the world with a learning disability. A line up featuring 8 men and 8 women will compete on the Melbourne Park courts during the final four days of the Grand Slam.

Aidan qualified on the back of his achievements representing GB at the Virtus Global Games in France in June earlier this year where he finished in the top ten.

Aidan flies on out the 19th January to start his BIG Australian Adventure.

The format of the tournament sees the top 8 PWII Players split in to two groups of 4 in a round robin competition with the top two progressing to the semi-finals.  On top of this the players will also be paired up for a doubles tournament – Aidan has been paired with his good friend Ollie.

Who would have thought all those years ago when he first picked up a racket at Giffnock, he would be playing at a Grand Slam?

We are holding a fundraiser raffle for Aidan’s big AO Adventure which will be drawn at our next event which is the Comedy Night featuring headliner Des Clarke supported by Chris Forbes (the Other Murray), Ronnie Black and otherson Saturday 27th of Janaury from 7.30pm.

We have some fabulous raffles prizes (listed below) which can be purchased from any committee member or from our lovely bar staff – tickets are £5 each.
