Another Successful Year

By Mark LaRotonda, Special Programs Vice President

The 2023 ALTA Wheelchair Tennis program just finished a successful 30-week agenda which included two wheelchair doubles sessions, two five-week wheelchair tennis clinics, and our annual summer Run/Roll League competition.

Our wheelchair doubles matches prepared our players to compete in tournaments around the Southeast. Our clinics gave folks who were new to wheelchair tennis an opportunity to try the sport as well as teach skills to several of our up-and-coming junior players. In addition, our annual summer Run/Roll League competition brought together old friends and new, vigorous competition, and even some good old trash talking.

We had several new players join us this year. We sent three of our players off to college; one went on a wheelchair tennis and basketball scholarship while another was a recipient of an ALTA Foundation Scholarship.

We are at the Hudlow Tennis Center in Norcross on Tuesday evenings. If you are interested in joining us for either of the wheelchair sessions/clinics or Run/Roll, or know someone who might be, please reach out to our Vice President of Special Programs at specialprogramsvp@altatennis.org.

2024 is just around the corner!
