Wheelchair Tennis
Wheelchair tennis is a highly skilful, energetic and very challenging wheelchair sport, yet rarely is it covered in depth at major tournaments and not many people know much about it. Wheelchair tennis was created in 1976 in California and has been promoted by the National Foundation of Wheelchair Tennis (NFWT) since 1979 in the USA, and through the Wheelchair Tennis Foundation in the UK. Approximately 6,000 people now play the sport worldwide. It has been a Paralympic sport since 1992, and there are now 150 international tournaments for wheelchair tennis. It is also played at all four of the main able-bodied Grand Slams.
How does wheelchair tennis differ from able-bodied tennis?
Participation
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) describes an eligible participant for wheelchair tennis as Any individual who is medically diagnosed as having a permanent mobility-related disability resulting in a substantial or total loss of function in one or more extremities.... This therefore includes paraplegics, amputees, quadriplegics (quads/tetraplegics), people with Spina Bifida and people with brittle bones, amongst others. In addition to the Wheelchair Tennis Foundation and other associations, there is an initiative directed towards the implementation and encouragement of deaf tennis players since this is a hidden disability. The British Deaf Tennis Association and other similar bodies aim to increase and encourage the number of deaf people playing tennis from beginner to international level, and many already enjoy playing successfully at club and competition level.

Wheelchair Tennis
Background: People played tennis in wheelchairs before, but in 1976 the sport took off when Brad Parks hit a tennis ball from his wheelchair. The IWTF was formed in 1988, and more and more countries established wheelchair tennis programs. In 1991, the organization got a full time officer to promote its work. Its main purpose was to establish wheelchair tennis officially around the world. Word spread primarily through attendance at International Tennis Federation events, where member nations would hear about the work of the IWTF and ask if they could start a program in their country. As the organization and sport grew, the IWTF realized that the biggest barrier to starting up a program in another country was the lack of equipment. Wheelchair tennis players started donating their old wheelchairs to developing countries to help start their programs. Wheelchair tennis can be played on a regular tennis court, without changes to the rackets or balls. In wheelchair tennis rules, the player gets two bounces. The game can be played with able-bodied friends and family, which permits wheelchair tennis players to practice with anyone. The word spread of wheelchair tennis through "up-down" exhibitions, in which a wheelchair player teamed with an able-bodied partner. Exhibitions were staged around the world at major tennis events. Top tennis professionals helped promote the sport by participating in exhibitions. The IWTF is part of the ITF. It presently has 58 member nations. The website has complete instructions as to how to become a member, and how to get a copy of the rules. Even if a player's country is not a member of IWTF, there may still be opportunities for play through the ITF or the Disabled Sports Association. The ITF e-mail address is wheelchairtennis@itftennis.com, for information about playing opportunities all over the world.

Wheelchair Tennis
Maintaining positive physical activities is essential for the help everyone, including those who are mobility challenged There are many activities like wheelchair bowling and wheelchair basketball that are played by individuals worldwide who are not able to walk independently Maintaining positive physical activities is essential for the help everyone, including those who are mobility challenged. There are many activities like wheelchair bowling and wheelchair basketball that are played by individuals worldwide who are not able to walk independently. Wheelchair tennis has become increasingly popular of late and has been played for around 30 years.
Brad Parks is considered by many as one of the leading founders of wheelchair tennis. Parks was injured in a skiing accident in 1976. The accident, which occurred during an acrobatic skiing competition, left Parks paralyzed from the waist down. While in recovery he read an article about an athlete name Jeff Minnenbraker who had been playing wheelchair tennis in a custom built wheelchair.
About 5 months after his accident, Parks tried playing wheelchair tennis on his own. Soon after, he was at his hospital for a check-up and discovered that Jeff Minnenbraker was the new recreational therapist. They met and Minnenbraker gave Parks a few lessons. It quickly became clear though that the standard hospital wheelchair would not suffice for this sport.

National Capital Wheelchair Tennis Association
Promoting recreational and competitive tennis for all.

Wheelchair tennis was introduced to Ottawa in 1985 as an initiative of the Chairperson of the Recreation Development Committee of the Canadian Tennis Association with the Ottawa Athletic Club. The local legacy of the product was a successful wheelchair tennis program run by local leaders from both the tennis and disabled community. The National Capital Wheelchair Tennis Association (NCWTA) is a volunteer based body which guides the development of wheelchair tennis in the Ottawa-Carleton region. NCWTA is dedicated to promoting and providing competitive and community based wheelchair tennis activities for persons with a physical disability.
