Wheelchair Tennis first appeared at the 1992 Paralympics in Barcelona.
In Wheelchair Tennis the ball is allowed to bounce twice – the first bounce must be within the bounds of the court.
For athletes to compete, they must have a permanent substantial or total loss of function in one or both legs. For the quad division the eligibility criteria requires a player to have a impairment in three or more limbs.
The events are singles (between two players) and doubles (between two pairs). The winner of a match is determined by the first to win two sets.
