Event description: Brand New to this Region! Sportability hosts via the Midlands Wheelchair Tennis at The Shrewsbury Club (which is recognised as a leading hub for the LTA/Tennis Foundations Disability Network and boasts one of the most comprehensive tennis facilities in the UK with an array of indoor, outdoor, covered, floodlit, all weather and artificial grass courts) So we are delighted to announce a very special tennis event with Scott and the posse at The Shrewsbury Club.

  • If  you are ambulant, but use crutches or sticks, and would like to try, you are also welcome to come along – you do not have to be a full time wheelchair user to take part.
  • Don’t worry if you have never even thought about, or heard of, wheelchair tennis before.
  • The rules are the same with one concession – the wheelchair user can allow the ball to bounce twice before striking. That’s it! Same space, same techniques, same fun, and the beauty is that matches can be played with non-wheelchair users on court. So playing with friends or even mixed doubles is eminently do-able.

Moreover, these guys will supply sports wheelchairs and rackets etc for added mobility around the court, as well as expert tuition.

So novices and never-evers are absolutely welcomed.
