ABILITIES TENNIS ASSOCIATION OF NORTH CAROLINA - ATANC
The mission of the Abilities Tennis (formerly Adaptive Tennis Association of North Carolina) is to offer tennis opportunities at all levels for individuals with intellectual disabilities across the state of North Carolina.
The RTA supports the programming and events that help this very special population of tennis players . Footprints on the Court raised and donated over $40,000 to the ATANC in 2019.
The Abilities Tennis Association has created several programs following the existing adaptive tennis guidelines and rules of the court set by the International Tennis Federation for special needs tennis. These are the same guidelines currently accepted by Special Olympics. Our hope is that others will follow this precedence so that the athletes learn the same skills and follow the same rules of adaptive tennis wherever they choose to play and complete.
