To lead the team out onto the court was a great experience and I’m proud of everyone’s performance.”
The tournament saw four of the world’s top five ranked teams face one another in the round robin tournament held in Alabama, USA.
Great Britain beat the hosts and current Paralympic champions USA in the Gold Medal match as the team continued its preparations ahead of this year’s European Championships.
Reflecting on the captaincy, Walker said: “Our current captain Chris Ryan unfortunately couldn’t make this tournament and as vice-captain, I was asked captain the squad out in Alabama. Chris and I have worked hard to create an environment where individual players are trusted and are responsible in these situations.
“Winning this tournament has improved our world ranking to fourth, but our next few international tournaments will be a challenge.
“We need to consistently beat these teams to achieve at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. Saying that, this victory is well-deserved and the teams’ hard work and commitment is paying off. I don’t remember a tournament so closely fought by all teams.”
