Description Community

Jennifer Edmonson is a pioneer when it comes to wheelchair tennis. More than 25 years ago, she volunteered at the Cajun Classic in Baton Rouge, La. Five years after that, she took on the role of tournament director. And since, she has been helping change lives and grow the sport with her passion and involvement in wheelchair tennis.

Just last month, Jennifer was named Wheelchair Tennis Champion of 2021 and her tournament, the Cajun Classic, is a Super Series event on the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour and is easily one of the premier wheelchair tennis tournaments in the country, twice winning USTA Southern Wheelchair Tournament of the Year honors.

We loved chatting with Jennifer and know this conversation will give you loads of good vibes as well as some insights and info into the world of wheelchair tennis.
