Tennis uses adaptive equipment for mobility such as a wheelchair. There are rule modifications based on types of disabilities. A stand-up player can play against or on the same team as a wheelchair player. Modifications can be made to rackets to make it easier to grip the racket and hit the ball, and sometimes larger tennis balls are used.? Tennis courts can also be adapted such as reducing the court size or lowering the net.
