National Wheelchair Tennis Series

National Wheelchair Tennis Series

The Tennis Foundation National Wheelchair Tennis Series caters for players of all abilities and is the entry-level tier of tournaments for wheelchair players in Great Britain.

All events are run by experienced, local organisers with the support of the Tennis Foundation. These tournaments are a great way to meet other wheelchair players in your region and give you the chance to test your game at a competitive level.

For new players, every tournament in 2016 will have a Novice division that is only for players who haven’t competed before, and will be a fun, supportive way to try out playing competitively for the first time.

The players with a bit more experience can enter the main draw and are able to gain points at each tournament according to their finishing position. At the end of year awards will be given to the top ranked male and female players in both Singles and Doubles.

Every player who competes in a National Series tournament, either in the Novice or Main draw will then be eligible to compete in the National Finals weekend in Gloucester from December 9 – 11. This weekend is run alongside the Wheelchair Nationals and is a celebration of wheelchair tennis in Great Britain. It is a fun, social weekend with an Annual Awards dinner and social activities throughout the weekend.
