FALL CLASSIC OVERVIEW
o Largest adaptive tennis match play tournament in the USA.
o Approximately 375 will be required to assist with the 2014 Fall Classic tournament as coaches, partners, umpires and chaperones.
o No other program in metro Atlanta provides the kind of weekend-long competitive tennis playing experience for children and adults with intellectual disabilities that the Annual Fall Classic Adaptive Tennis Tournament offers. In addition, the tournament offers two overnight stays at the tournament hotel, dinner dance and closing medals ceremony. For some, this will be their first match play competitive experience.
o 165 children and adults with intellectual disabilities drawn largely from metro Atlanta, assisted by approximately 375 local adult and teen volunteers.
Goals: The goal of the 3-day tournament is to provide a competitive playing experience for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in a nurturing tournament environment that takes into account the special needs of this playing population. It offers players with special needs the opportunity to play with many of Atlanta’s teen and adult tennis league players. It also offers volunteers the opportunity to give back to the community through the game of tennis.
