Did you know ALTA has a Wheelchair League program? Spring Wheelchair, summer Run/Roll, and fall Wheelchair offer area wheelchair athletes, from beginner to advanced, a chance to play weekly tennis matches geared to their personal skill levels.
The spring Wheelchair league ended May 3 with an end-of-the-season event that included tennis, food, fun, wheelchair demonstrations, and fellowship until the center turned off the lights!
We are now managing the summer Run/Roll season that began June 7 and ends July 19 at Hudlow Tennis Center. In Run/Roll, an able-bodied player and a wheelchair player are matched against another like team of comparable ability. This league plays Tuesday nights at 6:30 p.m. and is open to adults 18 and older. The season lasts seven weeks followed by City Finals. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you started in the right direction. You need to be an ALTA member in good standing and available on Tuesday evenings.
Come be a part of these great leagues!
