AMBASSADOR

Tim Henman OBE

Former British No .1 professional tennis player

Tim Henman is one of England’s most successful tennis players. He reached a career-high ranking of world No. 4 on three occasions between 2002 and 2004, and ranked as the British No. 1 player in 1996, and again from 1999 to 2005. He is renowned for reaching four semi-finals at Wimbledon and reached six major semi-finals overall, as well as won fifteen career ATP Tour titles. Tim retired from professional tennis in late 2007 but remains very much active in the sports world as an AELTC Board Member and important member of the Wimbledon tennis club. He has also been part of the commentary team for the BBC coverage of the Wimbledon Championships since 2008.

Tim suffered a serious sports injury to the elbow at the age of 11, an injury that still impacts him today and which at the time stopped him from playing tennis for six months and competing for two years. As a member of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) Board and the Founder of the Tim Henman Foundation, Tim now advocates for more research in youth sport with the goal of preventing unnecessary injuries and improving training techniques

Tim will support Podium in its efforts to connect with the tennis community across the UK, to collect data on injury and sporting activity in young people so that solutions can be developed to lower the injury risk in tennis and other sports.
