ACEIng Autism at the US Open

USTA Adaptive Tennis Committee | June 01, 2019

ACEing Autism will be returning to the US Open to deliver its sixth annual clinic for children with autism. On Sunday, Aug 25th (the day before the US Open begins) ACEing Autism will provide a free clinic for children between the ages of 5 and 18. 


“We want to make sure that parents in the autism community know that their children can enjoy tennis here at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center where we have a weekly program throughout the school year,” says the program’s founder, Richard Spurling. “This clinic is an opportunity for parents and children to try our program and see how much fun tennis can be for their children!”
