Mission Statement

Tennis Is For Everyone is a non-profit organization formed to serve special needs adults in our community.  We offer adaptive tennis clinics/events to organizations within the Jacksonville community who serve adults with intellectual and developmental differences. 

 

We feel this is an important adjunct for this very special adult group in promoting healthy and happy lifestyles.

Our adaptive events include an “active” tennis session either on outdoor courts or gymnasiums.  We provide nets, racquets, special balls and hoppers and participation gifts.  We leave these items with the community so that resident and students may enjoy continued use.  In addition, lunch and social time is provided with our volunteer staff.  Your contributions make it possible for us to provide equipment and offer these activities.

In closing, we are a group of passionate men and women who truly enjoy providing the opportunity of a healthy activity and the benefits of social community.  It is perhaps more of a pleasure for us than the ones we serve to be able to participate in, not only the adaptive events, but in planning and offering our annual fund raising tournament event. 

 

We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for your participation in our fund-raising efforts.  Please let us know if you are interested in helping with the tournament and/or as part of our adaptive volunteer staff. 

 

We are a great team and welcome your help!
