Whether you are looking to get started or you are an experienced player, we have a program to suit your needs. Our programs are low cost and have demo equipment for you to try or rent, if you do not own a tennis chair. The training opportunities provided by BC Wheelchair Sports are run by certified coaches who have sound knowledge of wheelchair tennis.
