Special Populations


Connecting Players to Adaptive Tennis Programs

The USTA promotes and develops recreational tennis opportunities for players with differing abilities and circumstances. By identifying adaptive tennis programs in your area, we hope to connect players with special circumstances to  programs through our USTA web network. In order to be included in this effort, please click here and tell us more about your Adaptive Tennis program.

Adaptive tennis includes programs that work with individuals with developmental, psychiatric, physical or environmental disabilities. The USTA supports these programs, providing grants, equipment and resources for specifically tailored programs that provide fun, fitness and a positive social experience for participants. Visit the Adaptive Tennis page of the USTA website for more information.
