JTCC is a tennis center in College Park, MD committed to transforming lives by providing “Tennis for Everybody”. Providing tennis programs for people living with disabilities and military veterans since 2018, JTCC has become the national model for adaptive tennis, including level-based clinics offering tailored instruction, access to integrated clinics, extensive coach education trainings, and world-class camps and tournaments. JTCC serves more than 300 adaptive athletes every year, and is committed to providing opportunities for all players to engage with the game of tennis in ways that are meaningful to them and help them achieve their goals on the court and in life.

What is Adaptive Tennis?

Adaptive tennis is a form of tennis that provides adaptations for people with disabilities to learn, play, and compete in the sport. Whether it’s differentiated instruction, adjusting the number of bounces, or creating a supportive and rehabilitative environment, JTCC utilizes research and experienced coaches to provide adaptations for all players to feel successful playing tennis.


“The philosophy of our adaptive tennis programs at JTCC is to improve the quality of life of people living with disabilities by providing opportunities for players to engage with tennis in ways that are meaningful to them – whether it’s finding a community, competing in a tournament, or getting some exercise, we are here to help you achieve your goals on court.”

– Gabby Hesse, Head of Wheelchair & Adaptive Tennis
