Wheelchair Tennis has been rated as on track. Wheelchair Tennis made good progress in 2014 achieving its performance expectations, with Dylan Alcott ranked world number two at the end of the year.

The structure of the high performance program has matured in recent years and is now well integrated into Tennis Australia’s national strategy, with a good athlete pathway, good athlete monitoring and well developed support systems.

The program also makes effective use of research and innovation opportunities such as the Australian Paralympic Committee’s seating project, for which Wheelchair Tennis was the pilot sport.

Under the governance structures of Tennis Australia a broad range of programs, such as Wheelchair Tennis, are delivered. The ASC is currently working with Tennis Australia on further strengthening what is already a sound governance base; Tennis Australia’s members will vote in mid-April to accept     these changes. Upon implementation of this further improvement, Tennis Australia will be considered a benchmark for NSO governance.
