CELEBRATE ABILITY, DIMINISH BARRIERS OF DISABILITY
In South Africa we celebrate National Disability Awareness Month from 3 November to 3 December annually to educate South Africans on the rights of fellow patriots living with disabilities. It is a month dedicated to diminishing the barriers of disability and improving the quality of life of people living with disabilities .
The staff and the players at Wheelchair Tennis South Africa would like to extend their support to this wonderful and necessary initiative to all people with disabilities in our country. "Disability has nothing to do with ability"
Our players, our heroes, and our role models, Lucas Sithole, Kg Montjane and Evans Maripa have shown that disability does not hold you back from reaching your dreams.
"When you know what you want, you can get It – Just go for It." – Kgothatso Montjane
We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our game sponsor Airports Company South Africa for their dedication, support and commitment in empowering, advancing and improving the lives of people living with disabilities and loving the game of wheelchair tennis.
