Wheelchair Tennis

Wheelchair tennis is one of the forms of tennis adapted for those who have disabilities in their lower bodies. The size of courts, balls, and rackets are same, but there are two major differences from pedestrian tennis; they use specially designed wheelchairs and the ball may bounce up to two times.
Wheelchair Tennis: there are three domains that a physically disabled person can tap into: rehabilitative, recreational and competitive tennis. Players can pick and choose what kind of relationship with the sport they want and how far they want to take it. From rehabilitation, the player certainly benefits from the physical aspects and the psychological benefit, one of risk taking, is experienced in a positive way. Recreational benefits are physical, mental, social, psychological and wellness. And finally, if the player chooses, they can take the sport all the way to the Paralympics.
