The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is the national governing body for tennis in Great Britain. They're responsible for developing and promoting the sport, safeguarding the integrity of tennis, and helping as many people as possible to play (and enjoy) tennis.
Tennis can be adapted for any level of ability, as well as for players with disabilities. It can be adapted to make it easier, slower, and simpler to participate in. It is also a great sport to play too, with proven physical and mental health benefits for disabled people. All equipment and aids can be supplied to give the sport a go. There are sports wheelchairs if you have a physical disability and require the use of a wheelchair, and tennis balls that make a noise when they bounce if you’re visually impaired.
