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.
