The purpose of this study was to assess inter-experimental reliability and construction validity on aspects of physical measurement in the training process of wheelchair tennis athletes. This study uses research development research methods with a mix of qualitative and quantitative approaches. There are four stages: the first stage is to analyze ebooks, journals and book texts to design a series of tests, the second stage applies the Delphi technique, namely the author meets with experts to assess the physical test series that has been compiled, the third stage analyzes and data using the content validity ratio formula, reliability analysis using test retest. The experimental subjects in this study consisted of 15 wheelchair tennis athletes in the Special Region of Yogyakarta (DIY) and 7 experts who were academics and professionals. It has been found that the assessment items from 7 experts showed the value of the content validity ratio was 1.00 so it can be categorized as having high content validity, then the retest test was obtained a value of 0.81 < r 1.00 so it can be said to be very good or match the tennis character. wheel chair. This battery test has criteria that are relevant to wheelchair tennis, the construction of the test is relevant to the definition of the test, the test procedure is relevant to the purpose of the test, the assessment score is in accordance with the definition of the developed test. The series of wheelchair tennis physical tests that have been compiled have validity which is said to be valid
