Wheelchair tennis is a great individual sport for those looking for a game that’s both mentally and physically challenging. Wheelchair athletes play in both singles and doubles events, and there are divisions for men, women and quadriplegics. Looking for a sport to play with an able-bodied friend or family member? Wheelchair tennis is easy to modify for play with able-bodied people, and there are even “up/down” tournaments between people in wheelchairs and people standing.
Fun Fact: Wheelchair tennis is one of the few sports BCWSA offers that allows athletes to compete in electric wheelchairs.
