Tennis Changes Lives for the Beach Blast participants!
The annual Beach Blast was held on April 27 as a partnership between USTA/Virginia, Virginia Beach Special Olympics, Virginia Beach Tennis Patrons and Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation.
Special Olympic Athletes and Volunteers were teamed up to play tennis together in a Unified format.
With over 30 athletes and 70 volunteers, the courts were full. Special Olympians were partnered with volunteers and played no ad, pro sets.
Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation offered the courts and the Virginia Beach Tennis Patrons supplied volunteers and lunch. This is the signature Adaptive Tennis Event for USTA/Virginia Tennis.
All the players shared a common love: tennis. Tennis Changes Lives and it did that day for all the participants!
