Bulldogs Tennis Volunteers with Special Olympics
Charleston, S.C. – Members of The Citadel men's tennis team ran a training camp for the athletes of the Special Olympics of South Carolina this weekend at the Earle Tennis Center.
Tennis coach Oliver Reynolds was proud of the turnout and contribution from all the athletes.
"It was a great experience for our players and for the members in the Special Olympics Foundation," said Reynolds. "We had a great attendance that included 11 players who participated in the clinic. This allowed us to be able to work one-on-one with all the athletes."
The vision of Special Olympics South Carolina is to be the leader in lifelong and unified sports programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities, empowering athletes to be valued members of their community and respected members of society. The 2013 Mid-Winter Games will be held the weekend of March 1-3 on The Citadel campus. Badminton, basketball skills, power lifting, basketball team play, disc golf masters and unified bowling will be the featured sports.
The Bulldogs will take to the courts this upcoming Friday as they travel to Coastal Georgia to take on the Mariners at 2 p.m., for their first dual match of the season.
