"Kay sustained a spinal injury in 1993 at the age of 23. She took up wheelchair tennis as a way of keeping fit and it developed from there, culminating in competing at the Athens Paralympic Games in 2004. Kay began by playing a few tennis tournaments which then led to selection for the British Team at World Team Cups. Kay made the decision to train full time in 2000 with the aim of competing at the Athens Paralympic Games in 2004. During this time Kay became the British number 1 ranked player and was consistently ranked number 13 in the world. Kay's career high was reaching the quarterfinals at the Athens Paralympic Games in 2004 beating the 6th seed en-route. Since Athens Kay has started a family and retired from competition but still plays recreationally."
