Ace delivery for Paralympic medal-winning tennis player Jordanne

Time 8:00 am, June 23, 2017

PARALYMPIC medallist and multiple grand slam-winning wheelchair tennis player Jordanne Whiley has collected a new Suzuki Vitara SZ-T from the family-run Halesowen Motor House dealership.

The 24-year-old, who was made an MBE in the 2015 Birthday Honours for services to wheelchair tennis, said she chose the specially adapted Galactic Grey compact SUV for its stylish looks and comprehensive specification, including up to 710 litres of luggage capacity, which can accommodate two wheelchairs and several bags for her training and competitive commitments.

Whiley, who won bronze in both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Paralympics, said: ‘This is the first Suzuki that I have ever owned, and I fell in love with the Vitara as soon as I saw it. It’s very spacious, highly practical and economical to run, which is ideal, as I travel up and down the country and need to transport a lot of sports gear between venues. Furthermore, with the added benefit of an affordable package on the Motability Scheme, it’s the perfect formula.’

Andy Cooper, general manager at Halesowen Motor House in Dudley Road, said: ‘We were delighted when Jordanne got in touch with us to help her meet her requirements, and we are very pleased that she now has a car that ticks all the boxes. The Suzuki Vitara has proved one of the most popular purchases on the Motability programme, a worry-free leasing initiative which we have always been very passionate about. We wish her many years of enjoyable motoring as she starts her journey with Suzuki.’
