Tennis Program Available:  Coach is David Andes

Hi Team!  I have confirmed the following dates and times for tennis practices this Spring.  Notice that the times vary as well as the locations.  I know that many will not be able to make ALL of these.  I’m glad that y’all have other endeavors in your lives…including other Special Olympic interests!  I will reach out by email midweek before each practice as a reminder.  If you know you will be there, RSVPing will help make sure we have the right amount of volunteers.  We have a wonderful group and l look forward to seeing you on the court.
