TOLEDO, Ohio — On Saturday, the Twos Athletic Club hosted their first USTA Wheelchair Tennis Tournament.
The adaptive sports program allows everyone to participate and have a great time. Bringing wheelchair tennis to the area helped fill a need.
"Every year we're looking to add and add more," said director of tennis, Mark Faber. "It had gotten to a point where Andy (Rodriguez) and I talked and sat down, and wheelchair tennis was obviously a group of players that had not had the opportunity to play in the Toledo area and have someplace to call home."
Not only does wheelchair tennis have a home here in Toledo; it’s thriving. This weekend’s tournament saw players from all over the state come right here to the 419.
Gabby Segura goes to Anthony Wayne. She tried wheelchair tennis with a friend and loved it ever since.
"For me, I'm not in a chair every day, so I look normal to everyone," said Segura. "But I am disabled and I'm not able to play sports with everyone. I'm a very competitive person so it is really nice being able to go out and have fun."
