Girls Only Wheelchair Tennis Program! 

BC Wheelchair Sports Association is excited to launch a brand new 'Girls Only' junior wheelchair tennis program at the Surrey Tennis Centre. We are fortunate to have former Canadian Paralympian, Sarah Hunter, coaching the program and leading the girls through fun drills, activities, and match play. We would like to thank the Province of BC and viaSport for the generous contribution of this program.
