Wheelchair and Adaptive Tennis Programs
Wheelchair tennis is one of the fastest growing and most challenging of all wheelchair tennis sports. To meet this demand, the USTA offers programs geared towards the wheelchair player. Rules are the same as stand-up tennis, except the wheelchair player is allowed two bounces of the ball. Wheelchair tennis players can participate in local wheelchair programs, wheelchair tournaments from the local to the international level, and integrate into local able-bodied programming. For more information, contact Jackie Egelhoff.

Adaptive tennis is about accommodating the way tennis is played and taught for the unique needs of players with differing abilities. Tennis is a sport for everyone. Adaptive tennis emphasizes inclusivity by providing everyone, including those with disabilities, the opportunity to play, have fun and fall in love with our lifetime sport.
