The Whole Person’s Adaptive Sports Program is working with adaptive sports programs across the metro in order to provide diverse and inclusive play opportunities at competitive and recreational levels for people with disabilities living in the greater Kansas City area.

By working with participants to overcome physical and cognitive challenges in a supportive environment, these programs show participants their possibilities and assists them to reach their fullest potential, enriching and transforming their lives through sport.

Through adaptive sports, participants have the opportunity to meet positive role models, increase socialization skills, improve self-confidence, self-worth, physical fitness, decrease anxiety and depression, have less health risks, develop life-long skills and friendships.

Tennis for all abilities!

On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month, The Whole Person’s Adaptive Sports Program hosts a tennis session for all abilities from 11:00am-12:30pm at Northland Racquet Club. (arrive by 10:45am)

These beginner sessions are fun and interactive, involving simple techniques such as dropping or bouncing a ball to the participants as they try to properly make contact with the tennis racket and the ball. The session is open to all with a physical or intellectual disability. If you can swing a racket you can play! The sessions are a part of the Kansas City No Coast Program.

The cost is $5 per session. (Cash/Check due before play)
