Table Tennis

Para Table Tennis is a disabled sport which follows the rules set by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF). The usual table tennis rules are in effect with slight modifications for athletes who use wheelchairs. Athletes receive classifications between 1 and 11. Classes 1-5 are for those using wheelchairs and classes 6-10 are for those who have disabilities that allow them to play standing. Within those groups, the higher classification means the more function an athlete has. Class 11 is defined for players with an intellectual disability. Medals will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers based on age and gender.

Young man playing wheelchair softball
Wheelchair Softball
Wheelchair Softball was created by a few individuals with spinal cord injuries and lower extremity impairments, who still wanted to enjoy America’s greatest pastime. These individuals needed to develop a way of playing without the full use of their legs that would allow easy maneuverability in a wheelchair and keep the fast pace of softball. Thus was born a new game played on hard surfaces, such as a parking lot, instead of the normal grassy infield, and a 16-inch softball, which allows wheelchair players to keep one hand one the wheelchair while catching a softball without a glove. Wheelchair Softball is open to all Endeavor Game Athletes. At the time of competition, we will create at least two co-ed teams consisting of athletes of all ages. All equipment is provided. Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams.

Wheelchair Tennis
Wheelchair Tennis is a form of tennis adapted for individuals who use wheelchairs. While many of the rules are the same as in standing tennis, such as the size of the court, net height, and rackets, the two main differences are that athletes use sport chairs, and the ball may bounce up to two times, where the second bounce may also occur outside the court. The UCO Endeavor Games wheelchair tennis clinic and competition will take place at Edmond Center Court. You do not have to have a tennis/sports wheelchair to play--chairs will be available to use if needed. Medals will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers based on age and gender.
