Did you know?

  • Tennis rackets come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including ones that are shorter or longer, and lighter, which makes gripping the racket and hitting the ball easier. Sometimes athletic tape or a gripping device is used to secure the racquet to the hand and forearm.
  • Tennis wheelchairs with the cambered wheel are used for better stability and maneuvering. When learning the basics of Wheelchair Tennis, a daily wheelchair can be used. As a player becomes serious about the sport, many invest in a Tennis wheelchair.
