Fall Classic Information

September 27-29, 2019

Lifetime Athletic and Tennis – Peachtree Corners, GA

We are excited to announce dates and details for our 2019 Fall Classic. This is the premiere event that Special Pops Tennis hosts each year.

Now in its 14th year, we expect over 130 athletes to participate in The 2019 Fall Classic. In years past, we have hosted athletes from ten states. And historically, over 300 volunteers each year have contributed their time to ensure that the athletes enjoy a fun-filled weekend of tennis and camaraderie.

Singles and doubles match play at all levels of adaptive tennis is offered. In addition to tennis, there are fantastic social happenings including a dinner dance, off-court games, and two nights stay in a hotel. Meals throughout the weekend are included. There is a  nominal registration fee for athletes and coaches. Each athlete and coach will also receive a colorful event t-shirt and a welcome bag filled with goodies.

We are always interested in introducing new volunteers for this event. We are looking for people for a passion for the population and helping others.  Volunteers must be energetic and fully committed to their shifts and respective responsibilities. Tennis skill and knowledge of the game required for some on-court volunteers.

My daughter now practices on the court next to neighborhood kids who are 2 feet taller and twice her level of play, but what’s important is that she knows she belongs in the game and on the court, just like the other kids.

This was the most rewarding tennis experience I have had in all my years playing tennis.
