Special Pops leadership is dedicated to creating the same opportunities for our athletes that are afforded other persons who play tennis. The Special Populations Unified Doubles (SPUD) Tennis League was formed in 2008 utilizing an adaptive playing format. Athletes are placed on teams and compete as team members against similarly-skilled athletes on other teams. Athletes are paired with traditional tennis players (unified partners) in matches against opposing teams. These league usually plays towards the end of the summer. Please check the calendar for specific dates.
SPUD League players receive a team shirt and league participation medal, enjoy an end-of-season playoff and social interaction with teammates and members of other teams.
