Run by the Tennis Foundation, with support from the Lawn Tennis Association and UK Sport, Ticket2Tokyo aims to attract potential athletes across the country to find those with the desire and dedication to train to become elite athletes and compete for ParalympicsGB at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
We are looking for sporty and active individuals that have the capacity to develop skill under the guidance of elite level coaches in a world class training environment. No previous tennis experience is necessary and anyone with a medically diagnosed permanent mobility related physical disability is eligible to play wheelchair tennis, even if you don't use a chair in everyday life.
So whether you've got a spinal injury or an amputation, cerebral palsy or brittle bones, wheelchair tennis could be the sport for you. Come and have some fun finding out at one of our Talent ID festivals this September.
About: Wheelchair tennis uses the same rules as non-disabled tennis but players are allowed an extra bounce of the ball.
Equipment: Players use a specially designed sports wheelchair to aid mobility around the court. The court, rackets and balls are not modified.
Classification: Anyone with a medically diagnosed permanent mobility related physical disability can play wheelchair tennis. There are three divisions; men's, women's and quad, for players with a disability in three or more limbs.Competitions: There are over 160 tournaments on the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour and wheelchair tennis is played at all four Grand Slams.
Paralympics: Wheelchair tennis has been a Paralympic sport since 1992 with the quad division added in 2004. British players compete for ParalympicsGB.
