Our tennis clinics are led by a head coach, who will provide volunteers with instructions and guidance before activities begin. To sign-up to volunteer, please go to our POINT page here: https://dash.pointapp.org/organizations/1674 and create a POINT account and view all available opprotunities.

Veterans Clinics: Generally volunteers will work one-on-one or in small groups with veterans, helping with drills or competitions specified by the head coach.

Wheelchair Clinics/Socials: Volunteers may be asked to feed balls for drills as instructed by coaches or rally with players. Volunteers may also get an opportunity to try playing tennis in a wheelchair. Our volunteers' most important function is to ensure participants feel included, have fun and enjoy playing the sport we all love.

Special Olympics: Volunteers will participate in warmup, model fitness activities and help adaptive players learn basic tennis skills. Volunteers may rally or help feed balls for advanced adaptive players. See an overview of our collaboration with Special Olympics Maryland here!
