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.
Metropolitan Open Wheelchair Tennis Tournament
ITF Futures Event held in partnership with Wheelchair Tennis NSW
For the first time in the history of wheelchair tennis in Australia, Wheelchair Sports NSW and City Community Tennis welcomed 4 male and 5 female players from the Peoples Republic of China at the Metropolitan Wheelchair Tennis Open (Metro Open) at the Prince Alfred Park Tennis Courts in Surry Hills.
The Metro Open took place Friday to Sunday the 27-29 of November 2015.
This was the 5th annual Metro Open and the first time a women’s draw has been run at the tournament. Players had fantastic experiences and we helped to establish CCT and Sydney as a world-class wheelchair tennis facility and destination.
