Home About Us

The Adaptive Athletics Association was founded in 2010 in order to promote and grow wheelchair athletics in the United States. Comprised of current wheelchair tennis players, and some incredibly dedicated tennis enthusiasts, our goal is to promote wheelchair athletics (starting with Tennis and then branching out into many other athletics), conduct community outreach programs to reach new athletes and raise awareness of current wheelchair athletics in our communities.

We have hosted a world-class wheelchair tennis tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens in Palm Springs, tournaments at Mission Hills Country Club & Yorba Linda Country Club and tennis clinics throughout Southern California.

Giving players a chance to compete on the global stage by acquiring much needed ITF as well as local USTA ranking points without the need to travel great distances and at great expense.

We have also collaborated with other wheelchair tennis tournaments in Southern and Northern California to help increase enthusiasm, as well as create incentives for competitive players.

We are currently working hard to create relationships with many organizations that are either involved with wheelchair athletics or disabled services.


Our Mission

To promote an active lifestyle through the introduction of wheelchair / adaptive sports for disabled children and adults, and their families.

Through their participation in sports and recreation activities, all participants will increase their physical fitness, personal socialization, confidence, and independence.
