This is wild, it is not wheelchair tennis.  In wheelchair tennis only your legs are the disability.

In Quad tennis 3 of 4 limbs are non-functional.  You have to strap the racquet to your hand and push the wheel chair with the racquet hand.  Obviously you are unable to change grips.  

Here is an article about the #1 player in the world at "Quad Tennis"

If I ever loose the use of my legs I will definitely be playing wheelchair tennis.  Quad tennis sounds a lot tougher though.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

wow, talk about taking your limbs for granted.  That guy was fine until age 19 from a car accident.  It would be enlightening to try to play in a wheelchair just to see how hard it is.
