2018 Deaf Tennis Festival

Deaf Tennis Festival

On September 15th and 16th the Tennis Foundation is running a festival of deaf tennis. There will be a range of fun events and competitions to ensure there is an activity right for everyone!

We will have fun activities for beginners which will let them try tennis, learn new skills and take part with friends, siblings and parents – these activities are for everyone, not just those who are deaf.

There will be a fun competition in a Fast 4 format – this competition is only for deaf players but you can leave your hearing aids in. You don’t need to be a superstar – the focus is on enjoying tennis in a match environment!
