About Tennis

Tennis is a global sport played at all ages and by all levels of society. American tennis players have been representing the US at the Deaflympics since 1953. USA’s national teams have won more than 50 medals in various international deaf championships.

Emily Hangstefer of Signal Mountain, TN was recently awarded by the USADSF as the “Sportswoman of the Year,” her second consecutive award. She won the Dresse/Maere Cups held on July 14-19 in Chattanooga, TN. She also nabbed silver in doubles.

The USA Deaf Tennis committee is responsible for the selection of national teams to represent the USADSF in international competition. The committee’s mission is to increase public awareness of deaf tennis to the greater hard of hearing community, provide players with opportunities to participate in international Deaf tennis competitions, and promote sportsmanship and respect for each other’s culture.
