Wheelchair Tennis

Wheelchair tennis players sharpen their reflexes and skills so they can quickly move about the court. Players come to love the power they feel when smashing the ball across the net. Requiring no special equipment or modifications to the court, wheelchair tennis players compete against other wheelchair users and their able-bodied partners.

Midwest Wheelchair Outdoor Championship

This hometown tournament, a part of the NEC International Wheelchair Tennis Tour, is on the map for over 50 wheelchair tennis athletes from all over the world. From junior athletes to paralympians, this is the must see tournament full of competition.

We invite you to watch our local Mary Free Bed wheelchair tennis team play on their home courts. Tournament players are all USTA or ITF members.
