April is Limb Difference Awareness month. I love my stump and I would never ever change the way I was born. It breaks my heart to think that we could be looked at as a “tragedy” or “not right”. If you or anyone you know is struggling to come to terms with a disability, or has a newborn who is expected to have a defect, I urge you to check out Lucky Fin Project. Missing a limb does not mean you can’t live a happy, successful life - some of us just have less fingers or toes to do it😛😊😁 #stumplove

Nonexistent
Is
The ability
To do more
With less than that you possess
Yet that realization
May prove to be
Your total salvation.

General information

The funding for Wounded Warrior Tennis will be utilized to properly reimburse the instructors for their skills and time, purchase tennis equipment (racquets, balls, etc..) , training materials ( cones, air zones, target systems, etc) , set up fees for WWT ( IRS documentation, MD incorporation, etc), and web site management. An “Adaptive Clinic” has been held over a two day period in April of 2018, as supported by Patriot Enterprises. The number of veterans participants varies as they are obligated to have several rehabilitation appointments with their doctors and therapists, but our organization has interacted with 25+ individuals. Some of our veterans have never played the game before encountering our clinics, but they are fully engaged individuals who truly desire to learn and play this sport. Some of the players are prior tennis athletes, and want to improve their skill level, especially with the changes in their physical or mental conditions. Tennis is a means to regain their perspective after facing the harsh reality of military service. No matter the type of scars, the veterans persevere; Tennis can provide a pathway to a new life.

A Beginning

While I was still doing dentistry, I was talking to my now assistant Mike about his involvement in the “GerryHattricks” hockey program for the wounded veterans. Since I am such an avid tennis participant/ instructor/ fan , I was wondering why there wasn’t a similiar program for tennis. That was when we decided to create a program that would help our veterans learn the game that I loved.

Tennis is a game that can be a challenging as it is enlightening. It’s a perfect fit for those tramatized by battle and the conditions of war. It gives them a place of respite and solace, a place where the ”battlefield” is the tennis court. It tests thier resolve, but rewards them with a sense of accomplishment and bonding. Tennis is a part of the fabric of life.

Wounded Warrior Tennis strives to help those who have been willing to help in the service for our military. Let’s play this game.
