JTCC & ThanksUSA

JTCC & ThanksUSA began a partnership in Summer 2018 called Tennis Corps. Tennis Corps is a program designed to bring youth and veterans together on court through weekly clinics hosted at JTCC. The session serves as rehabilitative clinics for veterans suffering from mental and/or physical disabilities. Instruction is led by JTCC’s Abby Landis, a certified adaptive tennis coach, and Coach Brenda Gilmore from ThanksUSA. Every Wednesday from 11:30 to 1 PM, a group of veterans travel to JTCC and spend time on court with JTCC Champs doing various drills and participating in doubles match play. Once a month, the group stays for a lunch providing an opportunity for the participants to socialize with JTCC students and coaches. Click here to view some pictures of the program in action
