Special Olympics Iowa Hosts Tennis Training
USTA Iowa and Special Olympics Iowa held a training session for tennis coaches on Saturday, October 30 at the North Dodge Athletic Club in Iowa City. Tennis pro Fred Pedersen helped to re-certify all the tennis instructors. The purpose of the training is to prepare athletes for the Special Olympics Summer Games in Ames next May.
USTA Iowa also provided free racquets and equipment so each Special Olympics Iowa tennis site could start back up with their program next spring. This is the fourth training Special Olympics Iowa has provided.
Organizations that attended included: Davenport West Enders; Scott County Adults; RespectAbilities (East Moline) and Iowa City Recreation.
