Buddy Up Tennis exists to serve individuals with Down syndrome in an enjoyable and supportive environment, by providing an opportunity to learn and play tennis, in order to impact athletic, social, and emotional development. Buddy Up Tennis provides an enjoyable supportive environment where Athletes can learn to play tennis while engaging in activities in order to improve their athletic, social and emotional development with one on one attention from their Buddies. Athletes belong to a team, have the opportunity to progress throughout the program, foster friendships, build confidence, and so much more. These are life skills that are valuable both on and off the courts.
