From social play, coaching, mini circuits and tournaments leading to the potential of representing your country at World Championships and the Paralympics, there’s an opportunity for players of all ages and abilities.
The beauty of wheelchair tennis is that you can play with your able-bodied family and friends as well as other wheelchair players. Under the rules of tennis the wheelchair players are permitted two bounces and the able-bodied players one, but when you are practicing you can play to your own rules to suit the standard of the players on the court.
