ElfTennis is Teaming Up With ACEing Autism to Give Back With Tennis Programs For Kids, Manhattan, New York

New York City's own portable tennis school, ElfTennis is giving back to the community with their new tennis program for children on the autism spectrum. The hard working 'Star Elves' 

(ElfTennis' instructors) are teaming up with ACEing Autism to offer programs in Brooklyn, in addition to their usual Lincoln Center tennis lessons for kids.

ACEing Autism was founded by accomplished tennis professional Richard Spurling. Spurling and his partner, Shafali Jeste, a neurologist specializing in children with different levels of autism, founded ACEing Autism to give children on the autism spectrum an opportunity to learn social, cognitive, fine motor, and gross motor skills through tennis!

Esther Forrest, founder and owner of ElfTennis has previous experience working with SNACK NYC, the special needs activity center for kids, which offers after-school and weekend programming for children with autism and other special needs individuals to age 21. The ElfTennis instructors and all volunteers will be trained in the proper methodology by the ACEing Autism experts, and given the opportunity to work one-to-one with autistic children.

The ElfTennis and ACEing Autism program is one among various fundraising drives being hosted by ElfTennis this fall. The program depends on the compassionate service of dedicated volunteers. To sign up, please email info@elftennis.com. The schedule will be posted soon, so check online for more information on the tennis program and other fundraising efforts.
