Area 10 Special Olympics Regional Tennis Games
CORTA hosts the Special Olympic Area Games each year for all schools or special needs athletes that would like to participate. In 2019, we had over 340 athletes and approximately 200 volunteers! It was a day to remember for everyone involved!
Activities includes a Basic Skills group and Unified Doubles group. The Basic Skills group gives the athlete an opportunity to get points for the basic strokes of tennis – Forehands, Backhands, Volleys, Alternate Strokes, and Serves. The Unified Doubles gives the athlete an opportunity to play doubles with an “able” partner. We also have a circuit court for wheelchair athletes. For young children (ages 8 and below) we have a “fun” court set up with an obstacle course and games.
The skills and doubles events take place on court 9:30 a.m. – Noon. Lunch is provided for all athletes and volunteers. Every athlete will receive a t-shirt and player bag. Many volunteers are needed to make this day a special day. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Helen Powell at 706-317-4136 or firstname.lastname@example.org Register using the link below.
