Adaptive tennis is a form of tennis for those who have cognitive or physical disabilities. It is often played on a regulation or modified tennis court, with modification of the balls and racquets. In competitive play a modification used is that players get two bounces of the ball before it must be hit, instead of one.
The sport of tennis helps a player’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development.
