Adaptive Sports and Recreation

Our Campus Programs

Varsity Tennis


Clemson Wheelchair Tennis Team

The Clemson Wheelchair Tennis Team was founded April 10, 2019 and is proud to be Clemson University’s first adaptive athletics team.

The team is housed in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management's Adaptive Sports and Recreation, which is partnered with the Clemson Athletic Department for support in various ways. This partnership is unique in the world of adaptive athletics, and highlights Clemson University’s aim for inclusive excellence.

The team is currently looking to recruit future players. Please contact our program director, Jasmine Townsend, for more information about joining the team at or 864-656-2198.

Adaptive Intramurals

Are you interested in playing intramural sports that test your abilities in new ways? Or are you a student with a physical disability that needs accommodations or modifications to participate in sports and recreation?

Then check out the adaptive intramural options available through the Department of Campus Recreation! These are inclusive opportunities, so any Clemson student, faculty or staff member can play.

Put together your own team or let us help you out with that! We currently offer wheelchair basketball and hope to add wheelchair rugby soon. All sports are played in Clemson’s very own fleet of Per4Max sport wheelchairs.

Students with disabilities who need to borrow a chair must make an appointment with Dr. Jasmine Townsend to have a fitting prior to beginning any intramural season.


Wheelchair Basketball

5-on-5 full court wheelchair basketball, with between 5-10 players per team. You can sign up through Clemson IMLeagues - just scroll down the list of options until you find wheelchair basketball.

Paralympic Soccer Program


The Clemson University Paralympic Soccer Program (CUPS) is seeking elite players to train in a 7v7 small-sided format while working toward their university degrees.

This program presents a unique opportunity to play the game of soccer in a competitive training environment while still receiving a quality education and a great university student experience.

Some of the top athletes will have the opportunity to receive scholarships in the form of an out-of-state tuition waiver to Clemson University (the equivalent to almost $23,000 per year), which can be renewed each year up to 4 years based on their academic performance.
