Tennis for All Abilities
The Whole Person’s Adaptive Sports Program is hosting two 6-week sessions of our All Abilities Tennis program in 2020.
Session 1: Wednesdays, February 12 - March 18 | 5:30-6:30 pm
Northland Racquet Club, 306 Tennis Ct, NKC, MO
Session 2: Wednesdays, September 16 - October 21 | 5:30-6:30 pm
Macken Park, 1002 Clark Ferguson Dr., NKC, MO
$5.00 weekly participation fee (Cash/Check/Card payment due before play; scholarships are available to those who qualify)
The sessions are open to all with a physical or intellectual disability. We have individuals who come out who have multiple sclerosis, degenerative disk disease, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, etc. If you can swing a racquet, you can play!
We are teaching individuals basic racquet techniques, proper forehand, proper backhand, and mobility if they are able to do so. These beginner sessions are fun and interactive, involving simple techniques such as dropping or bouncing a ball to the participants as they try to properly make contact with the tennis racquet and the ball. Sessions are not focused on playing an actual match.
