Paralympic Sport Club, Children’s Lightning Wheels, the Union County Department of Parks and Community Renewal, the Wheelchair Sports Federation and USTA Eastern New Jersey are collaborating to bring a 3 hour tennis clinic to athletes, ages 10 and up, with a physical disability. Participants will learn the basics of wheelchair tennis from Dylan Levine, a Paralympic wheelchair tennis player. The clinic is also open to coaches, physical education teachers, and anyone who has an interest in learning more about wheelchair tennis and how wheelchair players can be integrated onto an able-bodied team. Tennis is a game for all.
Parents will have the opportunity to talk to experienced coaches about other sports and learn the value of sports for their children.
