Wheelchair Tennis Legend releases “Let’s Roll”

Sydney 2000 Paralympic gold medallist and six-time World Champion David Hall has joined forces with long-term coach Rich Berman to produce Let’s Roll – learning wheelchair tennis with the Pros video tutorial.

The tutorial covers all areas of the wheelchair game, such as basic strokes and mobility, advanced strokes and mobility, mental toughness, wheelchair selection and injury prevention.

Hall, who was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2010, said: “Rich is the master at teaching the wheelchair game, it’s a real honor for me to be involved in this project with him. I remember when I first started playing wheelchair tennis, to have something like this available would have been so helpful, also with tennis you never stop learning and ‘Let’s Roll’ covers all areas.”

Over the course of a 15-year career Hall succeeded in winning over 80 tournaments worldwide, including nine Australian Open titles, eight US Opens, seven British Open titles and six Paralympic medals.

Let’s Roll – Learning Wheelchair Tennis with the Pros is available free at www.wheelchair-tennis.com and www.letsrollwheelchairtennis.com.
