Extractions: Password: The Rules of Wheelchair Tennis The game of wheelchair tennis follows the same rules as able-bodied tennis as endorsed by the International Tennis Federation except the wheelchair tennis player is allowed two bounces of the ball. The player must return the ball before it hits the ground a third time. The wheelchair is part of the body and all applicable ITF Rules which apply to a player's body shall apply to the wheelchair. I. The Competitive Wheelchair Tennis Player a. In order to be eligible to compete in sanctioned ITF wheelchair tennis tournaments and the paralympic games, a player must have a medically diagnosed permanent mobility-related physical disability. This permanent physical disability must result in a substantial or total loss of function in one or more lower extremities. If, as a result of these functional limitations, the player is unable to play competitive able-bodied tennis (that is, having the mobility to cover the court with adequate speed), then the player is eligible to play competitive wheelchair tennis in sanctioned ITF wheelchair tennis tournaments. b. Examples of permanent disabilities that meet the eligibility criteria are: paralysis; amputation; radiological evidence of limb shortening; partial to full joint ankylosis or joint replacement. Such physical disabilities must consistently interfere with functional mobility. Findings such as soft tissue contracture, ligamentous instability, edema or disuse atrophy, or symptoms such as pain or numbness, without other eligibility criteria listed above shall not be considered a permanent physical disability.

The NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour was organised for the first time in 1992, comprising eleven international tournaments. Over the years, wheelchair tennis has attracted an increasing number of players. As a result, the International Wheelchair Tennis Federation (IWTF) was established in 1988. Its purpose was to manage, promote and develop wheelchair tennis on a global scale. On January 1st 1998, wheelchair tennis was fully integrated in the International Tennis Federation (ITF). Wheelchair tennis was the first disabled sport to have a federation at international level. The number of participating countries grew from eight to fifty. Wheelchair tennis is estimated to be played in over eighty countries.

Extractions: Activities Home Index of Activities Adapted Wheelchair Tennis Wheelchair tennis!?! How do you play tennis in a wheelchair? This is a question that every wheelchair tennis player has heard at one time or another. The only difference in the rules between wheelchair tennis and regular tennis is that wheelchair players can let the ball bounce twice if they need to (only the first bounce needs to be in). But any wheelchair player will tell you that it goes way beyond that. The added complexities that come with having to do everything with their hands and arms makes this game a whole new sport. One of the fastest growing wheelchair sports in the world with over 3000 players worldwide, wheelchair tennis stands out among wheelchair sports in that it lets able-bodied and disabled players play against each other on the same court. No longer do all of the participants need to be in a wheelchair like most other wheelchair sports. A disabled player can play against an able-bodied player, or even with an able-bodied player in a format called up/down doubles. This format lets families and friends play tennis together and helps break down some of the stereotypes and barriers that often limit interaction between the wheelchair bound and the upright world.
