A BEWDLEY teenager has come away with a double medal success in a national sports competition.

Dan Pennington-Bridges, who is currently studying for his A-levels at the Bewdley School and Sixth Form, was competing in the under-18 category in the Lawn Tennis Association's National Wheelchair Series at Leeds.

He was runner up in the singles competition and joint winner with his partner Alice Dyer in the doubles.

Dan, 17, who suffers from a bone condition and cannot walk without the aid of crutches, has been playing wheelchair sports since he was seven years old.

He first became interested in wheelchair basketball but after a serious spinal fusion operation on his back three years ago found that he could no longer play. He then focussed on tennis.

Last year, he entered the British Open Junior competition and from then his interest increased and the competition at Leeds was the first that was able to run this year.

Dan was delighted to compete, and even more delighted to come home with two medals.
