Tennis

Tennis is one of the most challenging and rewarding of all wheelchair sports. Participants will learn court mobility, stroke technique, the rules and scoring of the game, all while building strength, cardiovascular ability, and self-esteem in a fun group instruction environment.

Who Can Play

This program is for currently registered Sportable athletes.

With an emphasis on fun, Sportable’s Recreational Tennis program will focus on teamwork and individual skill development, while safely practicing social distancing, for participants ages 5 through adult who play standing or by using a wheelchair.
