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.

Join Besa and Buddy Up to empower youth with Down Syndrome through sport.
This is a special Buddy Up event as it will be the last clinic for the season!
During the first 90 minutes, athletes will go through fitness activities as a group, followed by each athlete featured by star level, to let them shine and show off their skills. After the clinic, athletes and families will enjoy a carnival celebration. 

Returning Besa volunteers will partner with athletes during their clinic and new volunteers will help run the carnival celebration. Carnival activies include, assisting with games (giant inflatable vertical extreme wall), temporary tattoo station, photo booth, t-shirt making station and popcorn/cotton candy.

  • 14 is the minimum age required and all minors must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Please wear comfortable/workout clothes and bring a water bottle. It will be hot and you will break a sweat!  

  • Parking is available in the surface lot.

  • Court appointed volunteering: At this time, we can not accept court appointed requests.
