Get Started

Are you interested in furthering your tennis skills? As well as mainstream tennis clubs we are establishing a number of tennis development hubs that have completed awareness training around the inclusion of deaf and hard of hearing participants. These hubs are also run by tennis coaches who work with participants with various ranges of hearing losses.

If you are interested in the deaf tennis competitive pathway, we have established development hubs – you can check out the locations of these facilities below.
