League News: Wheelchair Tennis And Run/Roll Gearing Up For Summer

ALTA Wheelchair League player

By Mark LaRotonda, Special Programs Vice President

May is here, and the ALTA Wheelchair program is in full swing! In April, we completed our spring competitive matches and are now preparing for our weekly clinics. These clinics are great for any level player — from someone who would like to try wheelchair tennis for the first time, to someone looking to fine tune their skills.

In June, we will begin our annual Run/Roll competition, with matches scheduled through July. In Run/Roll, a doubles team is made up of one wheelchair player and one standing player. We have eight matches each week, so we need 16 runners each week. These matches are always fun, competitive, and likely to have a bit of trash talking. On May 18, we will be holding a Run/Roll Mixer so people can learn how to play and get more information on how to participate in the summer Run/Roll League. The event will be from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Hudlow Tennis Center. Check back on our website and look for more details in your email. You won’t be sorry you signed up for this fun-filled mixer.

Competitive wheelchair matches and clinics are held every Tuesday evening at Hudlow Tennis Center in Norcross. We’d love for you to join us and see what it’s all about! If you are interested in participating in any of these programs, please reach out to our Vice President of Special Programs at specialprogramsvp@altatennis.org.
