A Very Special Tennis Event
Sports Wheelchairs Provided
Tuesday 14th May 2019

Booking now! You could be taking part in one of our very special tennis events with Dave and the posse at Southbourne Tennis Club.  Everyone within the Sportability remit is welcomed and sports wheelchairs will be provided.

Southbourne Tennis Club is an accredited LTA centre in Bournemouth and are the winners of Dorset LTA Club of the Year. The centre itself boasts six newly resurfaced courts in Matchplay II outdoor carpet. There is a clubhouse with kitchen and changing facilities, onsite parking and disabled loos.

And 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.

Remember, the Southbourne guys will supply sports wheelchairs for added mobility around the court, as well as expert tuition. So, whether you currently use a wheelchair or not, you can all take part.  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, but timing and technique.

Novices and never-evers are absolutely welcomed. It’s what Dave 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 12.00pm for a 12.30pm start and go on until approx. 2.00pm
