Thanks USA Clinics for Veterans
This fall, Iowa veterans have the opportunity to learn about tennis in a free program, called ThanksUSA, which partners with the USTA. The purpose is to provide opportunities for disabled veterans and service members to achieve therapeutic benefits and improve their overall health through adaptive tennis.
The clinics have been taking place every Tuesday at Walker Johnston Park in Urbandale. So far, there has been a great turnout along with mild weather for the lessons.
“My first tennis lesson was an ace,” said Rick Fredericksen, participant. “The pros gave us vets an appreciative welcome and patient coaching. Tennis and veterans seems like a winning match, Thanks!”
The final clinic will be on Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. If you have any questions, contact John Terpkosh via email or call 913-967-9926.
