Wounded Warrior Program
Three Wednesday mornings each month, year-round (weather permitting), CORTA hosts Ft. Benning's Wounded Warrior unit. At each session, we start with basic stretching and warm-up drills, then we move to an instruction phase to either teach the 5 strokes of tennis or to reinforce the skills of each participant. After that, we set up and play matches. CORTA provides everything needed (instruction, racquets, balls, etc.) at no charge to the participants or family members.
