Table tennis for athletes with physical disabilities is offered through the local United States Table Tennis Association chapter.

Practices are informal and held on weekends at the Broadway Recreation Center. MASD owns several competition table tennis tables that are completely wheelchair accessible. Local competition is available during the Desert Challenge Games. In addition, many regional and national competitions are available.


The Sports for Individuals with Physical Disabilities program is designed for athletes ages 6 and older who have an orthopedic, neurological or sensory impairment. This could include, but not be limited to, Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Amputee, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cerebral Palsy and Blindness.

As a general rule, potential athletes with physical disabilities who are still in school are those in the regular classrooms or the Orthopedically Impaired classrooms (OI). A classification system is used to determine an athlete's functional ability in an effort to have each athlete compete against athletes of similar abilities.

The Mesa Association of Sports for the Disabled is affiliated with several national organizations whose primary purpose is to provide sporting opportunities to individuals with physical disabilities. These include Wheelchair Sports, USA (Spina Bifida & Spinal Cord Injured), Disabled Sports, USA (Amputee), National Disabled Sports Alliance (CP, Traumatic Brain Injury, and stroke), United States Les Autres Sports Association (Arthritis, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Arthrogryposis, Neurological Diseases) and United States Association of Blind Athletes.
