Equipment

Tennis SERVES uses equipment that relies on the senses of hearing and touch. 

 

Sound-Adapted Tennis Balls

Made in Japan, each adapted tennis ball contains a small ping-pong ball filled with many small metal balls. These balls rattle on impact, allowing the athlete to locate the ball by hearing it.

 

Rackets

Our athletes use junior-sized tennis rackets, measuring 19 inches in length. The rackets have a large head and short grip.

 

Net

Blind tennis uses badminton nets, which are lowered to the ground and are shorter than tennis nets.

 

Tactile Court

The court size is smaller than a regulation tennis court. Lines are defined by taping string to the ground using duct tape. This way, athletes can use their feet to feel where they are on the court.
