Veterans TENNIS CORPS
In the summer of 2018, the Tennis Corps program was born out of a partnership between JTCC and ThanksUSA, an organization that supports military families. Tennis Corps is a tennis mentoring program that connects junior tennis players with military veterans, creating an environment of positive role models and community engagement.
JTCC offers a free weekly clinic year-round to veterans and active duty military service members and their families on Thursdays from 12-2 pm, led by former nationally ranked top 10 wheelchair tennis player Brenda Gilmore with the assistance of JTCC Champions program student-athletes. This clinic serves as rehabilitation for veterans suffering from mental and/or physical disabilities and promotes social interaction and camaraderie.
