Learning Disabilities Tennis

When we refer to learning disability (LD) tennis at a recreational level, we are including learning difficulties as well. This includes: Down’s Syndrome, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However in LD specific competitions and tournaments criteria for entry is connected to the person’s IQ (under 75) and are only open to those who are eligible.
