Wheelchair tennis is a high-energy sport requiring concentration, fitness and incredible skill. It follows traditional tennis rules with the only difference being players are allowed two bounces of the ball and the first bounce within the bounds of the court. Wheelchair tennis champion Michael (Mick) Connell offers 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 contact Mick directly on 0415 884 749.
