THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
ALL TENNIS BUDDIES PRACTICES AND ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED THROUGH JUNE 30, 2020.
SUMMER PRACTICES WILL RESUME NO SOONER THAN JULY 6 (tentatively).
I wanted to send you an update on Tennis Buddies and where our program stands at this time.
We had planned to host the Fred Johnson All Star Tournament in late June, but with regret have decided out of an abundance of caution to cancel the 2020 tournament. We have volunteered to try again next summer!
As to the status of our summer program, right now all activities have been suspended through June 30 as per Special Olympics Nebraska. Also, the Omaha tennis facilities are closed and no reopen date has been set. We will abide by the guidance that SONE gives us as we go forward. I am unsure if we will have any kind of summer program, but will keep you in the loop as information becomes available. Thanks again for all of your dedication to our Buddies. They are missing you and hope to see you all soon!
Please let me know if you do not wish to continue to receive e-mail updates on our program and I will remove your email from our contact list.
To the graduating seniors, we wish you the best and great success in your futures. Know that even with all the disappointments and uncertainty in these times you can look back on the time you spent with the Tennis Buddies and know that you made a difference in the lives of those that are often marginalized in our society. They offered you their devotion and willingness to learn with enthusiasm and you gave them encouragement, dedication and shared your passion and knowledge of tennis. For that we are all grateful and humbled.
These dates will be played on the Koch Tennis Center's outdoor courts on Monday from 5:45-7:00pm
