Free Weekly Clinics

Special Olympics adaptive tennis is offered for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities ages 5+. The clinics are level-based, providing specialized small-group instruction for beginner players picking up their racket for the first time to advanced tournament-level players, and everyone in between. Volunteers support coaching staff in working one-on-one with players who may need additional attention and support.

The program is open to all players with intellectual/developmental disabilities; players are not required to be registered with Special Olympics Maryland in order to participate. JTCC is proud to partner with Special Olympics Maryland to provide additional, year-round training opportunities for players who are eager to learn and play tennis!

Summer classes run June 10 – August 25 and clinics are held at JTCC (5200 Campus Drive, College Park, MD 20740).
