You Grow. Everyone Grows.

We invite you to enjoy a life experience that is deeply fulfilling, part of a growing national movement, and transform the life of another. You don’t need to be a tennis player. If you’re caring, energetic, and can volunteer just two hours each week for a six-week period in the spring and fall, we invite you to join our team of 5,000+ happy volunteers. You’ll be giving back to your community and helping us create fun and social interactions for children with autism through tennis. It’s an unforgettable growing experience for everyone involved. Explore our programs to find a location near you. All volunteers are welcome, from local high school and college teams, tennis enthusiasts, parents, special education teachers, ABA therapists, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists to name a few.

“What makes me come back every time is the impact it has on the players. I’ve tremendously enjoyed watching them grow as they go from being shy to a couple months later having conversations with peers and volunteers.”

"I get to not only help other people with the sport that I love but I also get to be out on the court and see them improve as tennis players, really just seeing the kids be happy and be themselves."
