What is Wheelchair Tennis?
Wheelchair Tennis is a fast-paced Paralympic sport.
Who Can Play?
Anyone can play wheelchair tennis! Individuals in a manual or electric wheelchair with a physical disability can participate. You do not need to be able to grip a racquet, as the racquet can be secured to your hand. Some players simply tape the racquet to their hand, while others have specifically designed grips.
Wheelchair Tennis Rules
The sport of wheelchair tennis follows the same rules as able-bodied tennis with the only exception being that wheelchair tennis players are allowed two bounces of the ball.
