USTA Wheelchair Tennis

USTA Wheelchair Tennis continues to be one of the fastest growing sports and most challenging of all wheelchair   sports.  Programs for beginning youth and adults are offered in various cities in Florida and Wheelchair Tournament opportunities exist throughout the year. Please contact Linda Curtis, Director of Community Tennis, at 386-671-8934 to find out more about wheelchair tennis in your area.


Benefits of Wheelchair Tennis

In wheelchair tennis, the player must master the game of tennis as well as the wheelchair. Learning mobility on the court is exiting and challenging and helps build strength and cardiovascular ability.  Wheelchair tennis provides persons with disability the opportunity to share in activities with their peers and family, whether ablebodied or disabled. A wheelchair player who plays against an ablebodied person in singles or doubles is allowed two bounces of the ball while the able-bodied player is allowed one bounce. Playing wheelchair tennis adds to socialization and the normalization of life after sustaining a disabling injury. Wheelchair tennis is a fun and exciting sport to be involved in!

Connecting Players to Adaptive Tennis Programs

The USTA promotes and develops recreational tennis opportunities for players with differing abilities and circumstances. By identifying adaptive tennis programs in your area, we hope to connect players with special circumstances to  programs through our USTA web network. In order to be included in this effort, please 
click here and tell us more about your Adaptive Tennis program.

Adaptive tennis includes programs that work with individuals with developmental, psychiatric, physical or environmental disabilities. The USTA supports these programs, providing grants, equipment and resources for specifically tailored programs that provide fun, fitness and a positive social experience for participants. Visit the Adaptive Tennis page of the USTA website for more information.
