The Tennis Foundation encourages more disabled people to play tennis in 2017 with camps and festivals

The Tennis Foundation is encouraging disabled people to make 2017 the year that they get involved in tennis by taking part in one of their disability tennis camps or come and try days.

In 2017 the Tennis Foundation will be running specific wheelchair tennis and learning disability tennis camps which are aimed at players looking to improve their skills, gain confidence and meet new people all under the watchful eye of a qualified coach.

As well as the wheelchair and learning disability tennis camps and come and try days, the Tennis Foundation will also be providing opportunities for deaf or hearing impaired and blind or visually impaired people to play tennis at various events and festivals cross the country in 2017.

Camps are four hours long, costing £15 and will be led by the Tennis Foundation’s Talent ID Coach who will provide useful tips and advice. The camps are also an opportunity to be talent spotted and if players impress there may be the potential to join the Performance Development Squad.

The Learning Disability tennis camps are a great way for beginners to get started in the game or for more experience players to develop their skills. The emphasis is on fun and friendship whilst also leaning to play tennis!

New for 2017 are Wheelchair Tennis come and try days which are aimed at new players who are just starting out in the game or perhaps have never played before and want to take up tennis. These are completely free and all equipment and expert coaching is provided!

The camps and sessions take place at locations across the country including London, Nottingham, Preston, Taunton and Leeds.
