Buddy Up Tennis is a weekly, high-energy 90-minute program focused on adaptive tennis, fitness, and fun for children and adults with Down Syndrome. The program provides an enjoyable and supportive environment where the youth can learn and play tennis while engaging in activities that improve their athletic, social and emotional development. 
This is a special Buddy Up event! The first 90 minutes features athletes going through fitness activities as a group and will then feature them by star level, to let them shine and show off their skills.  
Returning Besa volunteers will partner with athletes and new volunteers will help run a carnival type venue, including:
  • Assisting with games (giant inflatable vertical extreme wall), temporary tattoo station, photo booth, t-shirt making station and popcorn/cotton candy  
  • A short introduction will be provided at 8:45a to orient you with the program.
  • Wear comfortable/workout clothes. You will break a sweat!
