Rock Hill was selected as one of the tournament sites for the USTA pilot program “Tournament in a Box” for Wheelchair Tennis. The tournament had 11 registered wheelchair players and 11 able-bodied players. During the Run/Roll, USTA National Wheelchair Manager Jason Allen and USTA National Wheelchair Paralympian Coach Jason Harnett surprised players and event organizers. “They took the opportunity to rotate into the match play to test the skills of our players” stated Rock Hill Tennis Center Supervisor and Tournament Director Kim Ozmon.
The Rock Hill Tennis Center is home to the Carolina Rollin’ Rackets Wheelchair Program which meets every Friday and offers free training for all levels of wheelchair players and their family/friends.
