SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
SportsAid athlete Katie Swan, 16, made a big impression for Great Britain at the recent Fed Cup in Israel after she became the country's youngest player in the competition's history. Katie, ranked 524th in the world, received a late call-up after Johanna Konta withdrew through illness and ended up playing three matches.
SportsAid's alumni, current athletes, ambassadors, commercial partners and supporters will come together at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in London next Tuesday for a special screening of the charity's #SupportTheNext film to kick-start its 40th anniversary.
Setting a new world record is an incredible feat for any sportsperson, and it’s often seen as the pinnacle of their career. So, imagine the feeling when SportsAid athlete Jessica Stretton did just that at the age of 15 when competing in the Fazza International Para Archery Championship in Dubai last week!
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
