Wheelchair tennis is a brilliant adaptation to an incredible game. To facilitate the participation and practice of new athletes almost nothing is changed from able-bodied Tennis. Athletes use the same courts, racquets, and balls to compete; the only modification is a rule allowing a second bounce before a wheelchair user must return the ball. Since wheelchair tennis is so close to able-bodied tennis, athletes can practice and compete with friends and family who may or may not use wheelchairs. The accessibility of the sport has developed wheelchair tennis into an international sport and athletes have become quite competitive.
