Disabilty tennis

Currently on the Beeb. Quite impressive what they can do from a rolling chair. However I am not sure why disabled sport is televised.

What about "Father of 3" tevelised tennis competition?

Laugh

Maybe if you were a heavily tattooed, pierced, transexual father of three...fill out the rest... you'd get a chance.

However much it's wonderful disabled people have a chance to enjoy sport, it's perverse to televise it.

All part of desentisizing society.

There's nothing wrong with the odd televised disabled sports competition.  These people work every bit as hard as someone who isn't disabled and it would be a real shame if they were not recognized for that in any way.  They deserve to have some recognition - it's not their fault they are disabled.  I mean imagine being like those people and then being told you can't have a live sports contest?  That you aren't worthy for that because you're missing some limbs.

That's quite an ignorant position to have. Thumbs Up

Also, wouldn't wheelchair tennis actually be a fairer sport across the board?  I mean you are relying on arm strength a lot more and height a lot less.  And the slow ass courts wouldn't phase a good shot.
