Wheelchair tennis is a one of Australia’s fastest growing, high-energy sports requiring concentration, fitness and skill. The game follows traditional tennis rules, with the only exception being that a player is allowed two bounces of the ball.
You don’t have to be in a wheelchair to play wheelchair tennis! Our Wheelchair Development Hub is a great place for wheelchair tennis players to develop their skills playing against family, friends and peers.
We are growing Tennis Australia’s “Wheels Connect” vision by providing an accessible and inclusive environment for people to learn and play wheelchair tennis. Regardless of age or level of ability, we’ll connect you to a range of opportunities along the wheelchair tennis pathway, from novice to elite.
Professional coaching is provided by qualified tennis coaches for only $14 per 2 hour session for members at the Alexandria Park tennis courts, Park Road, Alexandria 2015 twice a month. We are also fortunate to have former world number 2 wheelchair tennis champion, Mick Connell, delivering private coaching at our Surry Hills tennis courts in Prince Alfred Park 2010. Mick's won numerous tennis tournaments and medals throughout his career, including a Silver Medal at the Seoul Paralympics and the Australian Open doubles with his partner, wheelchair tennis former world number 1 and tennis legend David Hall OAM.
No former tennis experience is needed to play wheelchair tennis – all you need is a want for fun. The Saturday program is held twice a month from 10am to 12pm. So come along to connect and socialise at the Alexandria Park tennis courts, Park Road, Alexandria 2015. Sport chairs available (if required).
