USTA announces players and coaches for 2009 Invacare World Team Cup

August 26, 2008 07:07 PM
The USTA announced today the players and coaches that will represent the United States at the 25th Anniversary of the Invacare World Team Cup. The nation’s top wheelchair tennis players will compete against participants from more than 30 countries around the globe, July 27th – August 2nd, at the Nottingham Tennis Centre in Nottingham, Great Britain.

This year marks the Silver Anniversary of the Invacare World Team Cup, making the 2009 event a unique occasion for all those involved. Often referred to as the wheelchair tennis equivalent of pro tennis’ Davis Cup and Fed Cup competitions, the Invacare World Team Cup tournament brings the elite wheelchair tennis players together to compete for national pride in one of the world’s premier team events for disabled athletes.

In this anniversary year, Nottingham also becomes the first venue outside of the United States to host the Invacare World Team Cup on three occasions.

As the national governing body for wheelchair tennis, the USTA manages wheelchair tennis in the United States, including the sanctioning of tournaments, overseeing wheelchair rankings, creating and managing a High Performance program for developing elite disabled athletes, and selecting teams to compete internationally for the United States.
