BECOME AN ATHLETE

Join our team and become one of our valued Athletes. Foster new friendships and build social and emotional skills while enhancing muscle tone and core strengthening.
Our program is comprised of both fitness and tennis. During fitness, our Athletes focus on agility, ball control and tracking, coordination, balance, speed and strength. Tennis is lead by professional instructors and trained by our national staff to help our Athletes reach their full potential.  Athletes learn all aspects of the game from groundstrokes, volleys, overheads and serves to point play.
All children ages 5 or older and adults with Down syndrome are welcome to participate in Buddy Up Tennis as an “Athlete”, regardless of ability or prior tennis experience
