Ability360 Wheelchair Tennis. A woman using a manual wheelchair hits a ball.

Wheelchair Tennis

Wheelchair Tennis is one of the fastest growing wheelchair sports in the world! Wheelchair tennis is played the same way as able-bodied tennis with the exception being that the wheelchair player is allowed two bounces of the ball. The second bounce may also occur outside the court.

Men and Women complete separately in the open division, while players with higher levels of impairment compete in the mixed quad division. Wheelchair tennis is one of the few adaptive sports that can be integrated, allowing a wheelchair tennis player to compete in non-wheelchair tennis leagues, tournaments, and juniors can play on their high school tennis teams.

Ability360 offers private and small group wheelchair tennis lessons and clinics for all ages and abilities.
