Australia’s reputation as one of the world’s leading nations in wheelchair tennis has been enhanced with strong results at the 2024 World Team Cup.

The World Team Cup isΒ the world’s largest annual teams competition on the wheelchair tennis calendar.

All five Australian competitors took home a medal in their respective sections at this year’s event, which was played on clayΒ in the Turkish city of Antalya.

The future looks bright with the Australian junior boys’ team, consisting of 17-year-old Benjamin Wenzel, 17-year-old Yassin Hill and 15-year-old Jin Woodman, finishing runners-up.

This marked the third time in the past five editions that an Australian boys’ team had advanced to the final.
