NITA Wheelchair Tennis
NITA is working to develop wheelchair tennis lesson opportunities through as many year-round tennis clubs as well as seasonal programs through special recreation associations in our district (see list under Community Tennis tab, then Special Recreation Associations subheading). 

Wheelchair tennis players can participate in all USTA programs including sanctioned junior and adult tournaments, wheelchair tennis tournaments, USTA League Tennis, USTA Junior Team Tennis, and any other tennis programs offered for able bodied players.  The only difference for wheelchair players participating in USTA event that is not strictly for wheelchair tennis players is that these players are allowed two bounces.  All other USTA rules for the event apply equally to the wheelchair tennis player.
