Australian Open 2023 will organise the first-ever All Abilities Day on Tuesday 24 January and host the first adults’ blind and visually impaired tennis exhibition at a Grand Slam event. Several juniors’ blind tennis exhibitions have been featured at the Australian Open the past few years.
All Abilities Day is about acknowledging the many inclusive formats of adaptive tennis. This event will include on-court opportunities for children and adults from Tennis Australia’s disability pathways.
On December 14th, Australian blind and visually impaired tennis players, Adam Fayad and Robert Fletcher, attended the launch of All Abilities Day. They were in the company of other Australian adaptive tennis players and former world No.1 quad wheelchair player and 2022 Australian of The Year, Dylan Alcott.
