Tennis for people with intellectual disabilities

An exciting new development this year has been the introduction of tennis for players of all ages with special needs.  There are 40,000 people with an intellectual disability in Ireland and up to now they haven’t had access to tennis.

The Sports Inclusion Disability Programme (SIDP) promotes greater participation & inclusion in Sport and physical activity for people with a disability in the County.  We do this by:

  • Providing training programmes to volunteers, coaches, care staff etc. to improve access to sport for people with disabilities.
  • Delivery of a wide range of inclusive events and sessions  annually
  • Provision of information and links on activities for people with disabilities
