USTA Wheelchair Tennis

David Hartsek




The USTA Southern Wheelchair Committee is devoted to the growth and development of wheelchair tennis in the Southern Section by:

  • Supporting clinics, camps, instructional programs, tournaments, and collegiate wheelchair tennis
  • Promoting the Southern Section Wheelchair Tennis Excellence Award
  • Assisting with coordinating the Southern Section

USTA Southern has long been a leader in the growth of wheelchair tennis. The first tournament was held in Atlanta in 1983. The following year the tournament was taken over by ALTA, the largest individual tennis association within the United States. In 1984 Nashville, TN and Natchez, MS held tournaments and in 1985 the Roho/PTR was introduced. These tournaments continue today and are sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation as well as the USTA and remain the top tournaments in the Section. The staff at USTA Southern, wheelchair committee members, state coordinators, teaching pros and the many volunteers have been responsible for the success of tournaments and programs the Southern Section now enjoys.
