The San Diego District Tennis Association, in collaboration with the USTA, Naval Medical Center San Diego and Balboa Tennis Club, will host the Third Annual National Tennis Camp for Wounded Warriors, May 20-24 (travel dates May 19 and 25) in San Diego.
The event is part of a proven program that for the past five years has provided tennis-based rehabilitation to more than 600 wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans from all the military branches to aid in their physical and emotional recoveries. The program has been featured in local, regional and national publications and has received accolades from senior Department of Defense officials for its excellence and impact.

And as in previous years, the San Diego District Tennis Association is working with local businesses, disabled sports clubs, community support organizations and individuals to cover all participants’ airfare, lodging, meals, transportation, tennis equipment and instruction.
