Chartered Physiotherapist

Emma graduated with an Honour’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Bath. She then went on to further her knowledge and career through studying a Master’s in Physiotherapy at Oxford Brookes University, graduating with a distinction.

For many years Emma dedicated herself to playing professional tennis; training full-time at the University of Bath and competing in international tournaments around the world, representing Great Britain on multiple occasions. Her greatest achievements include reaching a WTA world singles ranking of 870, winning a gold medal for Great Britain at the World University Tennis Championships and playing in The Wimbledon Championship pre-qualifying rounds in 2016 and 2017.

Emma’s tennis career was hampered by injury leading to her retirement from the game and inspiring her to become a physiotherapist. As an injured athlete, Emma worked with multiple physiotherapists, experiencing personally the positive impact physiotherapy can have in preventing and treating injuries. Having had a range of injuries herself, Emma is able to empathise with patients and understand the impact that injuries can have. The experiences that Emma has had throughout both her academic studies and tennis career led to her passion towards sports injuries and her drive to positively help others.

Since retiring from tennis, Emma has gained an interest in running and enjoys keeping fit and being active. Emma is also a qualified LTA tennis coach and has a post-graduate qualification in sports massage.
