Wheelchair Tennis

 

Wheelchair tennis is a high-energy sport requiring concentration, fitness and incredible skill. Wheelchair tennis follows traditional tennis rules with the only difference in competitions being players are allowed two bounces of the ball; the first bounce being within the bounds of the court.
