JR. WHEELCHAIR CAMP
May 19, 2017
This camp is for anyone ages 12-18 with a permanent disabling condition who uses a wheelchair for sport (exceptions for younger players can be made with permission from staff). There will be two tracks: one for advanced players and one for beginning players.
Everyone is welcome who wants to play wheelchair tennis. Players above the age of 18 may submit an application, but will be placed on a waiting list pending number of junior entries.
The cutoff for the number of entries will be 25. This camp is geared toward fun and camaraderie. Junior players will get a chance to meet players and coaches from other countries. Some of the best U.S. coaches will be in attendance, and the players will also get a chance to compete in an ITF-sanctioned tournament with junior world ranking points on the line. ADVERTISEMENT Come join the fun in Birmingham, Ala.
July 6-12, 2017 (arrival on July 6, departure on July 12.)
