Very Special Tennis Tournament on Tap

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by  Greater Pottstown Tennis and Learning.

The United States Tennis Association Middle States Section has recently partnered with the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania to pilot a series of entry level tournaments/play events geared towards Special Olympics athletes.

On Sunday, Sept. 20 the Greater Pottstown Tennis Association will host its first Special Olympics Tournament and Play Day event at The Hill School tennis courts in Pottstown.

The tournament is open to all SOPA athletes and will feature three separate draws based on skill level of participants:

* Traditional (regular tennis balls)

* Green Dot (full court, slightly lower compression balls)

* Red Ball Short Court (ideal for beginner players)

The tournament registration fee is $5 and will cover the entry into the tournament, food/refreshments, giveaways and participation medal.

At the end of the tournament, GPTA will host a free Play Day open to all adaptive players that includes fun tennis games and drills! 

For Play Day registration,  email Maryellen at maryellen@gptatennis.com

"Greater Pottstown Tennis and Learning is one of the region's only organization currently offering an Adaptive Tennis program and this event is hopefully going to go a long way to grow this program and allow other youth in our area to participate in a sport they may have never thought possible," said David Faulkner, vice president of GPTL.

  1. Students are also demanding for support and assistance from the administration staff and pay for essays so that they can spend their maximum time on study instead of spending their time in administrative activities.This is their great decision.
