Event Details

A Special Event – Tennis
Sports Wheelchairs Provided
Thursday 21st November 2019


On Thursday 21st November You could be taking part in one of our very special tennis events – Wheelchair Tennis – with Jack and the posse at the Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre.

This event is for everyone: wheelchair users, those who are ambulant, those who use crutches or sticks, basically anyone within our remit who would like to give it a go, you are all welcome to book and come along.

The Centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park offers first rate tennis facilities with six outdoor courts and four indoors courts all year round [which we will be using so don’t worry about the weather] and is fully accessible – It was the only purpose built London 2012 Paralympic venue and there’s plenty of disabled parking.

Don’t worry if you have never even thought about, or heard of, wheelchair tennis before. The rules are the same with one concession – the wheelchair user can allow the ball to bounce twice before striking. That’s it! Same space, same techniques, same fun, and the beauty is that matches can be played with non-wheelchair users on court. So playing with friends or even mixed doubles is eminently do-able.

Moreover, the Lee Valley guys will supply sports wheelchairs for added mobility around the court, as well as expert tuition.  These specialist chairs have a wide wheel base for easier, safe mobility (fast turns are a great aid to better play) and safety strapping to help those with low or no abdominal strength.  But, the main attributes are not strength, they are timing and technique, which you will acquire with the expert tuition.  Most of all it will be FUN!

So novices and never-evers are absolutely welcomed. It’s what Jack and the team do best! They’ll be on hand to tutor you from the most basic beginnings to the finer details of the game.

And if you have played before this will be the ideal opportunity to re-engage with the sport.

It’s different, fun and exciting, You may even surprise yourself! We will meet at 11.45 am for a noon start and go on until 2.00 pm.
