Words from current scholar

"The scholarship programme at Imperial has been incredibly helpful. The strength and conditioning sessions have been especially important to assist rehabilitation from injuries as I have had quite a few this year, and keeping on top of this enabled me to get back on court in time for some key competitions. Furthermore the funding allowed me to travel to some tournaments abroad which I wouldn’t have been able to compete in otherwise, helping me gain experience and ranking points, so I am really grateful to Sport Imperial for the support!"
