All "pedestrian" variations of tennis are being played, i.e. same-sex doubles, mixed etc. The only rule that differs from non-wheelchair tennis is the one that concerns the number of bounces a ball may take before it must be played. In wheelchair tennis the ball may bounce up to two times, the second bounce may also occur outside of the field. This also holds true for service. Wheelchair tennis got started in the mid-70s thanks to the efforts of Brad Parks who is effectively the creator of competitive wheelchair tennis.

The size of courts, balls, and rackets are same, but there are two major differences from pedestrian tennis; they use specially designed wheelchairs and the ball may bounce up to two times. The second bounce may also occur outside of the field. This is one of the official Paralympic sports and also played at Grand Slams . There are three categories; Men, Ladies, and Quads and each category has singles and doubles tournaments. Quads is the category for those with quadriplegia and it is sometimes called Mixed especially at Paralympic Games. Quads players can hold rackets taped to the hand and use electric-powered wheelchairs.

Quadriplegic players competed in the mixed events, while players with full use of their arms competed in the separate men's and women's events.
edit Events
Six events were contested:
  • Men's singles Men's doubles Women's singles Women's doubles Mixed singles (also called "quad singles") Mixed doubles (also called "quad doubles")
edit Qualification

Wheelchair Tennis
Wheelchair Tennis appeared for the first time on the Paralympic Programme in Barcelona in 1992. It originated from the USA in the 1970s and continues to develop a strong following of players and fans internationally. The game follows able-bodied Tennis rules and athletes must have high levels of skill, fitness and strategy. The only difference in Wheelchair Tennis competitions is that the ball is allowed to bounce two times - the first bounce being within the bounds of the court. Athletes must have a permanent substantial or total loss of function in one or both legs. For the quad division the eligibility criteria require that a player has a disability in three or more limbs. The events are singles (between two players) and doubles (between two pairs). The winner of a match is the first athlete or pair to win two sets. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the governing body for Wheelchair Tennis. In 2009, Wheelchair Tennis is practiced by athletes in more than 90 countries.

Wheelchair Tennis Wheelchair Tennis is a spectacular sport that enjoys great popularity during the Paralympic Games. To compete at a high level successfully, athletes must develop technique, stamina, persistence, speed and reflexes. Among Wheelchair Tennis athletes, a Paralympic medal is considered as the highest distinction: David Hall: There were a few tears. I expected it to be very emotional. I've been thinking about this ever since Sydney was awarded the Olympic Games.
Wheelchair Tennis at the 2004 Paralympic Games During the ATHENS 2004 Paralympic Games, Wheelchair Tennis competitions will be staged at the Olympic Tennis Centre of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (OCO).

WHEELCHAIR TENNIS
Wheelchair tennis is one of the fastest growing and most challenging of all wheelchair sports. To meet this demand, the USTA offers programs geared towards the wheelchair tennis player. Rules are the same as tennis, except the wheelchair tennis player is allowed two bounces of the ball. An important component of wheelchair tennis is mastering the movement of the chair. While everyday wheelchairs can be used to play, sport chairs specifically designed for tennis are widely used. One of the great aspects of the sport is that tennis players and wheelchair tennis players can actively and proficiently compete together.

    Work in the section to build the sport of wheelchair tennis. Start a program, host an up/down exhibition, or host a tournament. As part of recreation therapy after a disabling accident, it is strongly advised that newly injured individuals become involved in sports participation. Hospital rehab centers talk to patients about regaining strength, participating in their community, and maintaining emotional attachments to friends and family. Many organizations, including the USTA, have developed adapted sports programs to include the disabled population.  Although there are many disabled individuals that participate in athletics, most often the general public is unaware of these events. Tennis is one of the sports that requires no changes to the basic equipment or field of play.  The wheelchair player uses a racquet (although a quad may tape the racquet to the hand), the rules are the same, except 2 bounces for the wheelchair player, and the mode of movement is in a specially designed wheelchair. The tennis court dimensions are the same for all players.
    The USTA supports tennis as a lifetime sport, and it is through this message that wheelchair athletes can be included in the general population.

    The long bit about Wheelchair Tennis
    Advantage is a high-performance club for senior players which was founded by Garreth Greene in September 2009. Advantage aims to facilitate the progression and development of wheelchair tennis in Ireland. The club encourages wheelchair users with a high level of mobility to get involved in wheelchair tennis and train and compete at an elite level - or a level of their choice. Advantage Wheelchair Tennis is a club run under the umbrella of Irish Wheelchair Association - Sport. If you're not already aware, there is only one main difference between wheelchair tennis and able-bodied tenns - this being the ball can bounce twice. Apart from this simple fact, there is no difference! Wheelchair tennis was introduced by Brad Parks in 1976 and since then it has become one of the fastest growing wheelchair sports in the world thanks to it's easy integration with the able-bodied game. Ireland is not historically known as a tennis nation, this being also true with wheelchair tennis. This is not to say Ireland doesn't have great players, but more that we have not been largely recognised on an international large scale (yet!). However Wheelchair tennis in Ireland is slowly becoming more and more popular as people realise the benefits of the game and the enjoyment factor. It keeps you fit, is a relatively low-risk injury sport compared to wheelchair basketball or rugby. It can improve your balance, hand-to-eye-coordination, aerobic fitness, flexibility and most of all is fun to play - and competitive!
