The Second Annual Aces for Autism Tennis Exhibition is set for Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Kiwi Tennis Club in Indian Harbour Beach. It will support Florida Institute of Technology’s Scott Center for Autism Treatment.
A free tennis skills class for ages 5-15 who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and their siblings will be from 3 to 4 p.m. Because the limit is 50 children, advance sign-up ahead is recommended.
A Skills, Drills and Aces Competition, from 3 to 5 p.m., offers the chance to make a donation and win prizes for not getting “Aced.” Also, four of Brevard’s top players will play an exhibition game from 5 to 6 p.m.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Sponsorships for the event are $100 and include a name on the “Aces” shirt, a banner displayed at the event and one entry in the skills clinic or adult tennis clinic.
The Kiwi Tennis Club is located at 30 Tradewinds Drive in Indian Harbour Beach. For more information or to sign up for a skills class or tennis clinic, contact Colleen Middlebrooks at firstname.lastname@example.org or (321) 674-8106, extension 1.
The Scott Center at Florida Tech is dedicated to providing the highest quality treatment, training and applied research to enhance the functioning and improve the quality of life for children with autism and related conditions in Central Florida.
