Wheelchair tennis is a high-energy sport that requires 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. We are proud to be able to offer wheelchair accessible courts, lessons and clinics at the Prince Alfred Park courts in Surry Hills.
We also support Wheelchair Sport NSW by hosting the NEC International Wheelchair Tennis Tour’s Metropolitan Open – an International Tennis Federation futures event in December each year held at the Prince Alfred Park tennis courts in Surry Hills. We have many famous wheelchair athletes playing on the courts including David Hall, Australian Paralympian Gold Medalist and Hall of Fame member as well as Michael (Mick) Connell, formerly number 2 in the world and a Jensen’s Tennis member.
It’s an honour to have Mick at Prince Alfred Park delivering wheelchair tennis coaching and clinics for juniors and adults. Mick is involved in many Wheelchair Sports NSW activities and events and was the first man to win the singles crown for four consecutive years in the South Pacific Wheelchair Tennis Open. To book a wheelchair tennis lesson feel free to contact Mick Connell directly on 0415 884 749. .
