About Deaf & Hard of Hearing Tennis
Are you wanting to get active, meet new people and participate at your local tennis club?
Tennis can help you connect to a range of opportunities where you can be involved in tennis activities and programs at your local club. We also have pathway opportunities as mainstream tournaments and elite pathway programs where you could potentially represent Australia at the Deaflympic Games, World Deaf Tennis Championships and Asia Pacific Games for the Deaf.
