About Tennis club of people with disabilities Sirius
The Club Sirius was founded on August 24th 2009 as a Tennis Club ”Sirius” with a goal to organize, promote, develop and improve tennis and sports.
In May of 2010 we organized our first international wheelchair tennis tournament and in the Club we focused on persons with disabilities and wheelchair tennis. Since then we organize wheelchair tennis tournament each year in June of July.
In 2013 the Club changed its name and becomes the Tennis Club of people with disabilities ”Sirius”. Same year it has become a member of the Zagreb Sports Association of People with Disabilities.
Through the work of the Club and the organization of the tournament, we focus on the promotion of wheelchair tennis and try to involve as many people with disabilities who want to play tennis, recreational or professional. Wheelchair tennis in Croatia does not have a lot of fans, unfortunately. There is not enough interest, because of anonymity of the sport and partly because of prejudice. So, our goal is to attract as many people with disabilities and their families because wheelchair tennis is very attractive, fun and healthy sport that has a lots of advantages.
The greatest achievement of the Club and our members is organization of the international wheelchair tennis tournaments. Find out more about Sirius Open 2016.
