About the Cajun Classic
The Cajun Classic Wheelchair Tennis Tournament is sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is one of only two Level-1 tournaments in the United States. Now, in its 27th year, the Cajun Classic attracts top professionals and amateurs from throughout the world.
The 2015 Cajun Classic attracted the largest field in our tournament’s history: 125 wheelchair players from 18 countries and 29 states, including 17 of the world’s top-10 professionals and eight amateurs from Baton Rouge.
Players who participate in the Cajun Classic are all ages — seniors to teenagers — and include those who are paraplegics, quadriplegics and amputees, as well as those with birth defects. But, the players’ disabilities have become “different abilities” as they play amazing and highly-competitive tennis.
The Cajun Classic is supported by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), USTA-Southern Section, the Louisiana Tennis Association (LTA), and the Greater Baton Rouge Community Tennis Association (GBRCTA), which is the presenting sponsor.
