Coastal Bathrooms are proud to be a shirt sponsor of Simon Heaps, the 65 year old disabled athlete who is attempting to play for England at the 2022 Commonwealth Para Games in Wheelchair Table Tennis when he will be days away from his 67th birthday.
Simon lost his right leg in May 2019 as a result of 53 yrs being a Type 1 Diabetic. The loss of his limb was life changing but actually spurred him on to play the sport that he loved at the highest level again.
As an able bodied athlete Simon represented England at both Jnr and Snr level with the highlight being crowned European Cadet Champion in 1970.
He has already made his GB Para debut, just months after leaving hospital and learning how to play his sport from a wheelchair.
We wish Simon good luck with his table tennis goals and are pleased to support him on this incredible journey over the next 2 years.
