Wheelchair Tennis


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

We are honoured to have Wheelchair tennis champion Michael (Mick) Connell offering lessons and clinics at the Prince Alfred Park courts in Surry Hills. Mick was formerly number 2 in the world and won the 2013 NSW Metropolitan Open Title after winning both the Open Men’s Singles and Open Men’s Doubles. To book a wheelchair tennis lesson with Mick please feel free to contact him directly on 0415 884 749.

City Community Tennis also hosts the NEC Metropolitan Open Wheelchair Tennis Tournament each year, an ITF Futures Event at the Prince Alfred Park tennis courts in Surry Hills.
