Hi, I'm NielsVink

I am seventeen years old and have a great passion: wheelchair tennis! The last five years I have spent a lot of time every day on this intensive sport. My goal and big dream was to achieve the highest possible: participation in the Paralympic Games 2020 in Tokyo. But yes... something came up with the letter C. Not much changes for me: I am determined to become Big in Japan in 2021!

There is only one way to get to Tokyo and that is to be in the top 8 of the best players in the world in the quad category on a date to be determined. At the moment I'm in position 6 on this ranking. To stay here, I still have to play a lot of international tennis tournaments to collect points.

Travelling to international competitions (and everything that goes with it) costs a lot of money. I have to pay those costs myself. Although I have the A status of NOC*NSF, as I am not yet eighteen, I am not eligible for the financial benefits. That's why I could really use your help. With a financial contribution you give me a push in the right direction. Will you help me on my way? I'll do the rest!

You may be wondering why I'm in a wheelchair. I had a bacterial infection at the age of one (meningococcal sepsis), which amputated my legs, fingertips and several spots of my skin. But I don't feel different from others and I'm no different from others. I want to inspire others (with or without disabilities) to pursue their dreams and get the best out of themselves.

Thinking in possibilities! That's what I believe in and what has brought me this far! Will you help me get on with it?
