Our greatest concentration of training occurs during the March to May timeframe. This training includes preparing the athletes who intend to participate in the tennis competition at the Special Olympics Georgia Summer Games. Competing in the Special Olympics Georgia Summer Games is not a prerequisite for participating in spring training. However, if an athlete plans to play tennis at the Summer Games they are required to attend the spring tennis academy. Our Spring Tennis Academies are available to everyone who meets the eligibility requirements. Check the Calendar and get started today!
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.
In tournament competition, athletes are placed in a division based on their rating as determined by the Special Olympics North America rating system. In addition to match play, the tournament experience may include traveling to other cities for the event, overnight lodging, meeting new friends, and additional opportunities to learn to play the game in a competitive spirit.
Fees may be required for tournament play to cover costs such as entry fees, transportation, meals and lodging.
