<x-charset iso-8859-1>Lola,

I don't know if this would be of interst to you, but below is information on
the USPTA's wheelchair certification program. I don't know of any
organization besides the Special Olympics which may have information on our
special populations and tennis teaching other than wheelchair.

Ron Woods, uspta

-- Program is held at sites nationwide, including Boston, Cincinnati and
Dallas --

The United States Professional Tennis Association is conducting wheelchair
tennis instructor training and certification nationwide, including in the
cities of Boston, Cincinnati and Dallas.

USPTA's Wheelchair Tennis Professional Certification Program includes a
certification training course plus testing in the form of a written exam and
private and group lessons. The education curriculum includes the grips,
strokes, mobility techniques and strategies of wheelchair tennis, as well as
other factors that make wheelchair tennis different than tennis for
able-bodied players.

Scheduled dates for the certification program are June 21 in Boston, August
9 in Cincinnati and November 17 in Dallas. Additional dates may be added.
For more information, please call the USPTA Membership Department at (800)

"Tennis is said to be the fastest growing wheelchair sport," said Tim
Heckler, USPTA CEO. "USPTA began offering this certification program in 1999
to help fill the need for high quality instruction, especially for those who
are trying tennis for the first time, but also for more accomplished
wheelchair athletes."

Wheelchair Tennis Professional certification is available to USPTA-certified
tennis professionals and nonmembers.

Also, USPTA will offer a four-hour specialty course about wheelchair tennis
on Sept. 17 at the World Conference on Tennis in Marco Island, Fla. A
complete conference schedule may be found at Plus, an
audiotaped seminar about wheelchair tennis may be heard in the career
development section of

Founded in 1927, USPTA is the world's oldest and largest association of
tennis-teaching professionals. With more than 12,500 members worldwide,
USPTA strives to raise the standards of the tennis profession while
promoting greater awareness of the sport. The association offers more than
30 professional benefits for its members, including certification and
extensive educational opportunities. It also works with organizations such
as USTA, TIA, CMAA and IHRSA to improve tennis programming.
