Tennis is a popular sport for players of all ages and skill levels. Every athlete aims in passing the ball to the opponent's side of the net, striking it with a tennis racquet. The sport emphasizes values, such as fair play, sportsmanship and respect for fellow competitors. Tennis is not only fun to play, but it is a lifetime sport activity that is fun to practice and fun to learn.

In addition to traditional singles and doubles events, we offer individual skills competition, allowing athletes to train and compete in basic tennis skills. The development of these key skills is necessary prior to advancing to match play.

Find a Special Olympics Area program near you to participate. Contact your Region Director if you're interested in starting this sport in your Area. Find more information about tennis thru our partnership with Virginia Tennis Association.
