Special Olympics Day in Tallahassee

June 9, 2004 09:11 AM

The Tallahassee Tennis Association and USA Tennis Florida combined efforts to promote the Tallahassee Tennis Challenger and TTA and USA Tennis Florida programs by sponsoring a Special Olympics Day at the Tournament.  The event took place June 4th at the Scott Spiecher Tennis Center at Florida State University where the Tallahassee Tennis Challenger was held.  The children participating were from Gretchen Everhart School for children with special needs.  Volunteers included Owen Long and Taylor Long (a ball girl at the tournament.), and Xavier Spencer from Tallahassee’s First Serve Program, who also served as a ball boy at the tournament.  It was a day that was a win-win for all involved.  The event attracted members of the community to the tournament and the tournament gave the TTA a forum to promote their programs.
