ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The Rotary Club of Alpharetta donated $1,500 to sponsor the Special Pops Tennis Round Robin tournament which was held on Saturday, March 4 at the Country Club of the South.

Special Populations Tennis Program, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers an adaptive tennis program specifically designed to share tennis with children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

The Rotary Club members and the Special Pops Tennis Athletes came together on the courts in an up-the river-down-the river, no-ad scoring format, playing in 30-minute intervals. Each participating Rotary member was paired with a Pops Athlete.

Programs are offered free of charge to all skill levels, including those who have never played, and include year-round tennis instruction, league play and tournament competition. It is also an accredited agency of Special Olympics Georgia, and the only tennis training arm for many local SOGA-accredited agencies.

“Alpharetta Rotary is very proud to support Special Pops which offers a program that teaches and shares the lifetime sport of tennis while providing these special athletes the opportunity to build their self-confidence as well as life skills through social interaction,” said Jason Binder, president of Rotary Club of Alpharetta.
