Adaptive Tennis

Adaptive Tennis includes tennis programs for individuals with various types of physical disabilities, such as players who wear a prosthesis, as well as tennis programs for players with mental disabilities.  Special Olympics has an outstanding program for players of all ages and abilities who have cognitive disabilities, such as mental retardation or Down Syndrome, as well as other intellectual disabilities.

There are often special teaching methods and techniques working with individuals with physical or mental disabilities, and specific USTA resources, both local individuals and written materials available. 

A national program that several of the special recreation associations in Northern Illinois work through is the Blaze sports program.
