Rules to play Wheelchair Tennis
Dr. Bal Moore, coach of the US Olympic wheelchair team says, Mobility is the single most
important aspect of wheelchair tennis. It provides the base and transition for balance, timing,
motion, and the execution of skills. This is perhaps the biggest difference between
wheelchair and able bodied A B tennis.
Randy Snow, 10 time US Open wheelchair champion adds, Mastering mobility is probably
the most important area in becoming a good wheelchair player.
To develop players, coaches need to know the framework and components of wheelchair
tennis movement.In order to maximize positioning for any shot, a wheelchair player goes through a Mobility
Cycle. The Cycle includes The Neutral Position, Maneuvering the movement of the chair
to position for the shot, Preparation setting up for the stroke & the stroke itself, and
Recovery the chair movement to prepare for the next shot.
