It was a chilly, wet, blustery day, but that did not stop the USTA Wheelchair Committee from hosting a highly successful Wheelchair Tennis demo at the USTA Annual Meeting last month in La Costa, CA. 

Bad weather kept them off the courts, so the players took to the courtyard instead. They set up nets,  put on a fun exhibition, answered questions and even got plenty of able-bodied players, like Todd Martin and Patrick McEnroe to give it a try.  While both spectators and participants enjoyed a good time and had some laughs trying to maneuver their chairs, the exhibition was a chance for many to learn about wheelchair tennis for the first time.

A special thank you to everyone involved, especially players Anthony Lara, Michael Foulks, Tiffany Geller Reed, David Buck, Dan Larson and Coach Jason Harnett for coming out and making the event a great success.
