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.
Our vision is to grow Tennis Australia’s “Wheels Connect” program by creating an accessible and inclusive environment for people to learn and play 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 $20 per 3 hour session for members and we’re fortunate to have former world number 2 wheelchair tennis champion, Mick Connell, as part of our coaching team. He’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, David Hall. Mick offers private tennis lessons and clinics at the Prince Alfred Park courts in Surry Hills.
No former tennis experience is needed to play wheelchair tennis – all you need is a want for fun. So come along every Saturday from 2-5 pm to play, connect and socialise at the Alexandria Park tennis courts, Park Road, Alexandria 2015. We have 1 sport chair (if required) and refreshments are provided or you can bring your own.
