Special Olympics Tennis

Special Olympics tennis in Indiana started in 2013 with 20 athletes at Carmel High School by then-high students Nick Hennessey and Molly Fletchall. Today the program is at three sites and served 83 athletes in 2017. This program was still the only Special Olympics tennis in Indiana. Special Olympics programs are free to all participants and coaches are volunteers. HCCTA has been the financial supporter for all the sites since the program began. Volunteer buddies are paired with an athlete for the duration of the summer program.

All sites meet once a week for one hour for an eight-week summer season. A separate awards party is held at the end of the season for each site. If you would like to volunteer for the 2018 summer programs or register a player, go to the web site for the county you live in and enter the name of the county and Special Olympics.
