Wheelchair Tennis
Wheelchair tennis follows traditional tennis rules and requires great levels of skill, fitness and strategy. The only difference in wheelchair tennis competitions, is that the players are allowed two bounces of the ball; the first bounce being within the bounds of the court.
To be eligible for these competitions, the athlete must be classified as having a mobility-related disability. Players are classified on a skills basis in the following categories: Open – Elite level players A, B, C, D – Graded players. There is a separate division for quad players.
