Wheelchair tennis is a high-energy sport that requires concentration, fitness and incredible skill. We are proud to be able to offer the community wheelchair accessible courts and lessons at Prince Alfred Park, Surry Hills.
Wheelchair atheletes who have used or continue to use the courts at Prince Alfred Park include David Hall, Australian Paralympian Gold Medalist and Hall of Fame member as well as Michael (Mick) Connell, a Jensen’s Tennis member who currently conducts wheelchair tennis classes on the courts. Mick is involved in many Wheelchair Sports NSW activities and events. He 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, you can phone Mick directly on 0415 884 749.
We are also honoured to have been chosen by Wheelchair Sport NSW to host 2012 NEC Metropolitan Wheelchair Tennis Open an ITF futures event taking place on Friday 30th of November to Sunday the 2nd of December 2012.
The NEC Metro Open is the last of three ITF wheelchair tennis tournaments hosted by Wheelchair Sports NSW (WS NSW). WS NSW has chosen City Community Tennis Centre not only because it is a state of the art facility but also due the tennis centre’s prime location. The amount of people visiting the centre means it is perfect to showcase the best of disability sport and wheelchair tennis as well as encouraging people to find out more about these talented athletes particularly as the event is part of International Day of People with a Disability.
It is sure to be a quality tournament as players attempt to make a lasting impression ahead of the Apia Wheelchair International Sydney. Preliminary rounds will be played on Saturday the 1st while the finals are scheduled for Sunday the 2nd of December.
