WHEELCHAIR TENNIS FALL/WINTER 2022-2023

Thank you for your interest in Sportable's Wheelchair Tennis Program!   

 

Tennis is one of the most challenging and rewarding of all wheelchair sports. Participants will learn court mobility, stroke technique, the rules and scoring of the game, all while building strength, cardiovascular ability, and self-esteem in a fun group instruction environment.

 

With an emphasis on fun and learning, Sportable’s Youth + Beginner Wheelchair Tennis program focuses on individual skill development, learning the rules of the game, and beginning the pathway for athletes to a lifelong sport. Our competitive program focuses on skill progression and tournament preparation.
