Wheelchair Tennis

The USTA is dedicated to providing top-flight programming and developmental opportunities to wheelchair athletes of all ages and backgrounds. The goal, above all else, is for the athletes to learn the sport of tennis and have fun.

 

Some of the finest athletes in the world are a part of our game. You can be a part of it, too.  We have a complete pathway from youth and high school (Net Generation) through collegiate play and beyond.

 

The USTA also sanctions wheelchair tennis tournaments throughout the country, providing play opportunities for all skill levels. One of these sanctioned tournaments takes place in the Chicago District each fall at Centre Court Althletic Club.  This year’s Chicago Mini Wheelchair Classic takes place on Saturday, October 3, 2020. View details here.

 

In addition, wheelchair tennis players can earn a national ranking to ensure they're matched with players of a similar skill level, and there are opportunities for players to represent the U.S. in international competitions, from the Paralympics to the Parapan Am Games.
