How do you get started in wheelchair tennis?

First, find a friend to play with. The beauty of wheelchair tennis is that you can play with your able-bodied family and friends as well as other wheelchair players. Under the rules of tennis the wheelchair players are permitted two bounces and the able-bodied players one, but when you are practicing, you can play to your own rules to suit the standard of the players on the court. You can also email the ITF at for information on the opportunities to play and find coaches for wheelchair tennis in your country.
