Olympic & Paralympic Games
Olympics: 27th July -12th Aug 2012; Paralympics: 29th Aug - 9th Sept 2012
Wheelchair Tennis was one of 20 sports that made up the Paralympic programme for the London 2012 Games in front of sell out crowds at Eton Manor in the Olympic Park.
Still one of the fastest growing wheelchair sports in the world, wheelchair tennis integrates very easily with the non-disabled game since it can be played on any regular tennis court, with no modifications to rackets or balls. Wheelchair players are allowed two bounces of the ball. This means it's easy for anyone to pick up a racket and give the sport a go. And if you aren't a wheelchair user, there is still a version of tennis for you!
