Programs

Get involved in wheelchair tennis!

Wheelchair tennis is a fun sport for people with a variety of physical disabilities and can be played in either a manual or an electric wheelchair. No matter where you live in BC, we can get you involved.

BCWSA offers weekly programs, clinics, fun development camps, tournaments and many more opportunities. We have participants at the junior, developmental, recreational and elite levels. From our fun themed wheelchair tennis events like our St. Patrick's Day Fun Day to the internationally ranked Vancouver International Wheelchair Tennis Tournament, there's something for everyone!

We are currently recruiting players, coaches, officials and volunteers of all levels. No tennis experience is necessary! If you’re interested in getting involved, contact Michelle McDonell at michelle@bcwheelchairsports.com or 604-333-3520 x208
