In 1998 the United States Tennis Association assumed responsibility for wheelchair tennis in America from the National Foundation for Wheelchair Tennis. Since then the USTA has become the first National Governing Body of both Olympic and Paralympic tennis governing Paralympics, Para Pan Am Games, and World Team Cup (Davis Cup equivalent in wheelchair tennis).

Wheelchair tennis is one of the only Paralympic sports that can integrate with its able-bodied counterpart. The only rule difference is that the wheelchair player receives two bounces. This has allowed wheelchair players to participate in USTA League Tennis, USTA Jr. Team Tennis, USTA Tennis On Campus, and the opportunity to compete on varsity high school teams.

Wheelchair tennis players can participate in local wheelchair programs, wheelchair tournaments from the local to the international level, and integrate into local able-bodied programming. Tennis promotes good health, socialization, and fun for all players. Wheelchair tennis simply creates that avenue for any tennis player with a permanent mobility disability.
