PLEASE NOTE: NEW BUDDY ORIENTATION WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN MARCH - THE MARCH SESSION IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR RETURNING BUDDIES. 
 
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. 
 
Buddies (volunteers!) are the nucleus of the Buddy Up program and the primary reason the program.  No tennis skills are required.  The most important qualities: a positive attitude, willingness to help, and being ready for a fun and rewarding experience!
  • Each individual with Down syndrome is partnered with a Buddy Volunteer who provides encouragement, coaching, and support.  
  • Buddies have fun building and fostering new relationships with Athletes and gaining a unique and rewarding perspective on life. 
  • Wear comfortable/workout clothes. You will break a sweat! 
  • Returning Volunteers: If you already went through orientation, you do not need to show up until 9:20a.
  • Become a #besahero. Sign up, today!
