Welcome to BRWTA!


In Memory of our friend Mitch Bourgeois
Dec. 31, 1968 – Feb. 20, 2023

We deeply miss our dear friend Mitch Bourgeois who passed away Feb. 20, 2023. Mitch was a longtime supporter of the BRWTA and the Cajun Classic, both as a wheelchair player and as a volunteer. If you would like to contribute to BRWTA in Mitch’s memory, please see below.

Our very own Jennifer Edmonson was recognized as the 2021 Wheelchair Tennis Champion of the Year. Click here to see the story in Racquet Sports Industry magazine and click here to see the story posted on the USTA Southern website.

The BRTWA was proud to be recognized in December 2017 by the Louisiana Tennis Association for its work, promoting wheelchair tennis and producing signature events (the Cajun Classic and Hallowheel) that showcase wheelchair tennis. Accepting the award (l-r) were BRWTA Board members Abby Heath, Lynn Serio, Liz Heath, and Karen Serio. 

Welcome to the Baton Rouge Wheelchair Tennis Association – a non-profit, all-volunteer 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting the sport of wheelchair tennis in the Greater Baton Rouge Area. We invite you to explore our web pages to learn more about our world-class Cajun Classic Wheelchair Tennis Tournament, our Hallowheel fundraising tournaments (tennis and pickleball) that raise funds for the Cajun Classic, and our beginner’s adapted tennis carnivals.
