USTA Tennessee and National Wheelcats , Inc. teamed up to host the first Run/ Roll Social at Centennial Sportsplex Tennis Center on Sunday, November 24th from 1:00 PM PM to 3:00 PM.

 Area Jr. Team Tennis players and parents paired with local wheelchair athletes in exhibition style match play. Run / Roll tennis features a unique partnership that pairs one wheelchair player with one able-bodied player to form a doubles team. The rules in run / roll tennis remain the same as any other doubles match with the exception that the ‘roll’ player is allowed two bounces before he or she returns the ball back over the net.

Spectators enjoyed the exciting exhibitions, and witnessed why tennis is the fastest growing of all wheelchair sports.  Refreshments were served during the event and live music provided by local duo November Lily (www.novemberlilyduo.com).

Thanks to Kristen Schlukebir, James Crawford and Blain Smith, and approximately 50 players from Nashville's Jr. Team Tennis fall league and their parents. Thanks to all the wheelchair athletes that came to play in this great event!

If you would like to participate as player or volunteer, contact USTA Community Coordinator, Tara Williams at tarawilliams@ustatn.com.
