Dear Tennis Community:
Last month I was privileged to coach 2 Special Olympians from south Louisiana as they competed in the North America Tennis Championships in South Carolina at the Dennis Van De Meer Tennis University.
These two young men won gold medals in singles as well as in doubles competitions during the 3 days of play. Due to their talent and sportsmanship they have been invited to represent Louisiana in the Xperience Tennis Tournament for elite level Special Olympian tennis players in Charlottesville Virginia in January 2015.
We are currently attempting to raise funds for plane fair and other incidentals associated with traveling to this prestigious event. If you would like to assist these athletes you can make donations in one of two ways:
Send your donation to me. Please make your check payable to SOLA TENNIS (Special Olympics Louisiana). Please make sure to include "tennis” in the memo as well. And send it to me at 9537 Leaside Circle, Shreveport LA 71118
Mail your donation to Special Olympics Louisiana at 1000 E Morris Ave, Hammond, LA 70403. Please let me know if you mail your donation to Hammond so that we can keep track of it.
Any assistance is appreciated! We welcome your prayers as we attempt to raise the needed money for this trip as well as your prayers for our players as they continue to practice.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
