about us

“we are all different, which is great because we are all unique. without diversity life would be very boring."
—catherine pulsifer

“Adaptive Tennis” is a concept designed to meet the athlete exactly where they are no matter their disability or ability. We introduce fitness, tennis skills and teamwork during our camps that can be modified with a variety of equipment, ball compression, and skill-appropriate games. Our play-based curriculum encourages social interaction, basic athletic skills, hand-eye coordination, balance and especially a love for tennis!

 

Athletes will form bonds with their coaches and fellow players while learning about the love of Jesus Christ and God’s perfect design for their lives. All sessions are supervised by trained and qualified coaches along with volunteers from our community.

our mission

Center Court’s mission is twofold. During weeklong summer camps, volunteer coaches teach a variety of tennis skills to athletes of all abilities while celebrating God’s beautiful, unique and perfect design for every human. Our goal is for each participant to experience physical, social and spiritual growth while learning to love the lifetime sport of tennis!

our camps

This spring we will be offering three Sunday afternoon clinics. We will also host two summer camps in 2022 that will run Monday through Thursday evenings for one hour. Athletes will be divided into groups based on their diagnosis and then paired with one-on-one coaches. Their coach will guide them through warmups, play games that develop hand / eye coordination, teach tennis skills, and have fun match play! Each athlete will receive a t-shirt and a completion medal at the end of the Spring Clinic and each Camp Session. Bring your own racquet or borrow one of ours! You don't need to bring anything except a winning attitude! 

For any Athlete that would like to participate in the Special Olympics State Games on May 12-13 in Searcy, AR, we will be holding extra practices this spring. Check our HomePage for details!
