Summer tennis program for Special Needs available at Gwynedd Mercy

From Gwynedd Mercy College:

Touch of Tennis is a free clinic open to special needs individuals at any age. It is run by GMC head tennis coach Jim Holt, and is supported by a melting pot of volunteers, including student volunteers from Gwynedd-Mercy College, as well as from other colleges, universities and high schools. Students from more than 30 schools are involved.
Through the clinic, special education students at GMC are provided with an opportunity to interact with special needs individuals right on campus, and many choose to participate again because of the companionship that they gain through the experience.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) awarded its 2010 National Adaptive Service Award to Gwynedd-Mercy College’s tennis clinic.
