For athletes who enjoy the intensity of a one on one sport, get on the court and play wheelchair tennis. If you're not so familiar with the game, wheelchair tennis follows the same rules as mainstream tennis, except as the player, you're allowed to have the tennis ball bounce twice, rather than once. You'll play on a regular surface court with no modifications needed to the tennis racket or tennis ball.
You can start playing tennis with your day wheelchair and then get a tennis wheelchair when you decide to play more seriously. If you'd like to get more involved in the sport, the International Tennis Federation contains a host of information, including complete rules and regulations, recent news, rankings, and how to get started in the sport.
