Region C Tennis

What Is Tennis?

A lifetime leisure sport, tennis provides athletes the opportunity to learn and perform a variety of sports skills. Tennis competition is offered in singles and doubles at various ability levels ranging from traditional tennis to Individual Skills Competition to develop basic tennis skills. Athletes also have the opportunity to compete with their non-disabled peers in Unified doubles.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in tennis compete locally at Region events. They are then eligible to advance to state championships at the State Tennis Championships held in Frankfort in August.
