There are opportunities to entre tournaments from beginner level right up to the UNIQLO wheelchair Tennis Tour, where the worlds top players compete in three divisions - men, women and quad, which is for those with a disability in three or more limbs.
One of the biggest myths about wheelchair tennis is that you have to use a chair in everyday life in order to be eligible to play. In actual fact the game is open to anyone with a physical disability including, but by no means limited to, spinal injuries, spina bifida, limb loss, hyper mobility and cerebral palsy.
This is the first year wheelchair tennis has been included in the Sainsbury's School Games.
Sainsbury's 2015 School Games wheelchair tennis athlete mentors will be available to meet and answer questions. The 2015 wheelchair tennis mentor is Louise Hunt.
All players shall be Under 19 years of age on 1st January of the year of the competition. In 2015, only players born in 1996 or after would be eligible.
Wheelchair Tennis competition will be at Manchester Regional Tennis Centre, Sportcity, Gate 2, Manchester, M11 3FF. Click here to view or print the venue guide.
