River City Slam

May 29-31, 2020

Collegiate School

 

Sanctioned by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), the River City Slam is open to all levels, including first-time players in Men, Women, and Quad Divisions.  Collegiate School will host all matches at its Robins Campus.

One of the fastest-growing wheelchair sports in the world, wheelchair tennis is played on a standard tennis court in the same way as able-bodied tennis, with the only exception being that a wheelchair tennis player is allowed two bounces of the ball.  The athlete’s wheelchair is considered to be a part of the body, so rules applying to the player’s body apply to the chair as well.  Wheelchair tennis has been part of the Paralympic Games since 1992 and has been played at all four Grand Slams since 2007.
