Wheelchair Tennis Program
JTCC, a tennis center in College Park, offers free weekly wheelchair tennis clinics on Sundays from 1-3 pm. The clinics are open to people with disabilities of all ages, from beginners to experienced players. Sports wheelchairs and tennis rackets are provided. Wheelchair tennis has only one difference between its able-bodied counterpart – the tennis ball may bounce up to two times instead of just once. Everything else - the scoring, size of the court, equipment – is the same, and you can play the sport with anyone whether they are playing in a wheelchair or not! The qualification to compete in official competition is a permanent disability that affects mobility at or below the waist. If you do not have a qualifying disability but are still interested in learning more about the sport or volunteering, you are more than welcome to attend!
Sundays | 1-3 pm | Register

Disability Community Affinity Space
The PCDI Student Advisory Committee's (SAC) mission is to amplify the voices of UMD students with disabilities and their advocates, and to create a platform for those people to form bonds and propose change.
PCDI SAC will host bi-weekly Student Disability Community Affinity Spaces in Spring 2022. If you identify as part of the Disability community, please come join us! These meetings will provide an opportunity for us to connect, socialize, and support each other (including by sharing resources).
