Abilities Tennis Association of North Carolina (ATANC) is a non profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising awareness and developing adaptive tennis programs for persons with intellectual disabilities throughout the state of North Carolina. Their goal is to provide adaptive tennis programs year round through clinics, tournaments, and PE-Adaptive Tennis in the Public School systems. They work closely with USTA NC, Community Tennis Associations, Public School Systems, Parks and Recreation departments and Special Olympics of NC.
Abilities Tennis has adapted tennis programs to accommodate individuals with intellectual disabilities. This includes training coaches and volunteers; providing skills based, short court and long court tennis opportunities; and unified doubles which partners individuals without a disability with special needs athletes.
