Adaptive Tennis US is a nonprofit organization that provides professional tennis coaching and training to individuals with physical, emotional, and cognitive disabilities.

The program was founded by Dr. Karl Lee, a retired dentist and avid tennis player who was inspired by one of his patients who participated in a hockey program for disabled veterans. Beginning as Wounded Warrior Tennis, Dr. Lee realized that there many more people could benefit from tennis, such as those who experienced a traumatic accident or those who did not have use of one or more of their sensory tools. “The platform of tennis can be a tool for allowing others to discover the potential within themselves, to build self-confidence and motivation. Hence the eventual emergence of Adaptive Tennis US.”
