About Wheelchair Tennis
Created in 1976, wheelchair tennis is one of the fastest growing and most challenging of all wheelchair sports. It provides the opportunity for people with physical disabilities to compete in tennis on a recreational or competitive level and it also gives them the ability to compete with their able-bodied friends. All rules in wheelchair tennis are the same except wheelchair players are allowed two bounces of the ball.
We have established a prospering community partnership with JTCC, a world class tennis club dedicated to providing tennis opportunities to all ages and abilities. At our clinics, you will learn the lifelong sport of tennis from Brenda Gilmore, a formerly nationally ranked wheelchair tennis competitor and a USPTR and USPTA certified coach along with JTCC coaches. The free 15-week program is for junior and adult players of all tennis abilities. You will work to develop stroke technique, matchplay strategy, and mobility skills.
