tennis-1Wheelchair tennis is one of the fastest growing and most challenging of all wheelchair sports. Everyone, including quads and those who use power chairs, can play competitively.There are 12 levels of competition: five men’s divisions, three women’s divisions, two quad divisions, one master’s division (ages 40+) and one junior division.

In wheelchair tennis, rules and regulations are basically the same as in traditional tennis, except the wheelchair player is allowed two bounces of the ball. The sport allows individuals with disabilities the opportunity to play tennis with their family and friends regardless if they have a disability or not. Proficient wheelchair users can play and actively compete against standup players.
