Bucks Tennis has an impaired tennis coordinator, Joshua Card, who works with various clubs and charities to improve the accessibility of tennis for all disabilities.
Tennis is a completely inclusive sport and nearly everyone can participate in tennis in its full format or when adapted. Tennis doesn’t just offer people the chance to develop their fitness and coordination, but also to build social skills, confidence, self esteem and independence. The Tennis Foundation supports 40 Networks across the Country to offer the opportunities for disabled people in their local community to get involved with tennis.
We have 4 main clubs delivering disability sessions across the county, these are MK Inclusive Tennis, Wheelspin at Aylesbury TC, Halton TC and Stoke Mandeville.
Bucks Tennis are committed to improving the amount and quality of impaired tennis in the county and are proud to offer an impaired tennis grant. We are also running courses to help coaches become more at ease when coaching players with different impairments.
