The Orthotic and Prosthetic Assistance Fund and The First Clinics have been awarded a $10,000 grant from USTA Serves, the philanthropic arm of the United States Tennis Association (USTA). This is the third time in four years that First Volley has been a grant recipient from this division of the USTA.
According to OPAF, the grant will fund four to eight First Volley clinics across the country for patients of Shriners Hospital for Children, amputees, and those with physical challenges who wish to try their tennis skills with certified professional instructors.
“We are so honored to have been selected again by USTA Serves as a recipient of one of their grants,” said Robin Burton, OPAF executive director. “These funds will allow Shriners kids to learn or re-learn tennis skills and drills and get them involved in an active lifestyle again.”
