Sheet1 Page 1 SEPTEMBER 2010 SEPTEMBER 2010 Special Pops Tennis Program, Inc. Proposal to Oglethorpe University (New Training Site) About Special Pops Special Populations Tennis Program, Inc. (Special Pops) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that offers an adaptive tennis program specifically designed to share the lifetime sport of tennis with children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Programs offered free of charge to all skill levels, including those who have never played, include year-round tennis instruction, league play and tournament competition. An equally important aspect of our program is the opportunity it offers these special athletes to build their self-confidence and life skills through social interaction with each other and the many dedicated volunteers who run our programs. Based in the metropolitan Atlanta area, Special Pops is a registered Community Tennis Association of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and is recognized by USTA Georgia as the primary CTA in Georgia for teaching tennis and training coaches to teach tennis to players with special needs. We are also an accredited agency of Special Olympics Georgia (SOGA) and the only tennis training arm for many metro Atlanta SOGA-accredited agencies. Special Pops currently serves over 350 athletes at 14 different locations in the metro Atlanta area. As a grassroots volunteer organization we depend greatly on the generosity and participation of over 300 volunteers including local tennis pros and tennis enthusiasts which help support our year-round program offerings.
