After many years playing in the National League, Louise was invited to a Great Britain training session and although she was unsuccessful in getting into the squad for the 2002 World Championships, she came back and got her first international experience at the Europeans in 2003 where the team qualified for Athens Paralympics 2004. Her commitment and dedication to the Great Britain team saw her attend every major competition between 2005 – 2014.
Major accomplishments include 5 bronze medals from 6 European Championships, Gold at the 2011 Paralympic World Cup and competing at Beijing and London Paralympic games.
Louise has also had the honour of meeting HRH Queen Elizabeth II and visiting Downing street as well as meeting many celebrities. Photos of some of these events can be found in the gallery.
Having officially retired from Wheelchair Basketball in 2017, Louise has recently discovered a new passion in Para-Powerlifting and is enjoying being involved in elite level sport again and the challenges it presents. Her continued Paralympic journey can be followed on twitter, as well as in blog updates on the website.
