This course is for tennis teachers and coaches to augment their existing PTR certification with a certification to teach wheelchair tennis. Workshop participants actually use wheelchairs in order to understand the special skills required to maneuver the wheelchair and to hit from a modified elevation. Mobility, stroke production and general wheelchair basics are all covered in the curriculum. Attendees will understand the components of chair construction, as well as learn that the degree of disability will vary with each wheelchair athlete. All attendees receive the course manual and additional resources for teaching wheelchair tennis.
