We want to celebrate the players, volunteers and others that make wheelchair tennis in North Carolina possible. Take a look at their story and how wheelchair tennis has improved so many lives. You always hear that it takes a village to make something happen, so take a look at all of these integral people.
Player - Wheel Serve Charlotte & Clemson University
McKenna is a quadriplegic wheelchair tennis player for Clemson University, where she is majoring in recreational therapy. She also participates in our Wheel Serve Charlotte program. She is quickly becoming a competitor and one to watch as she competes in USTA tournaments across the USA.
Volunteer - Wheel Serve Charlotte
Deb is a diligent volunteer for Wheel Serve Charlotte and is loved for her willingness to help in any way, her amazing tennis skills and her sense of humor. She and her husband, Ernie, have lived in Charlotte for six years. Deb has played tennis for 17 years.
Player - Wheel Serve Cary
Carrie Cleary is an enthusiastic wheelchair player for Wheel Serve Cary. She played tennis prior to her injury. Because of her passion and commitment to the sport, Carrie is volunteering her time to help recruit players for the soon-to-be Wheel Serve Sandhills program. She is a perfect advocate for the sport, since she understands its benefits on the person as a whole.
