What some happy tennis students say:
A cause close to both Aly and the Outer Banks Tennis Association's heart is a program known as Abilities Tennis. This program focuses on bringing health, friendship, and community to individuals with intellectual disabilities through the sport of tennis. Through a joint partnership with Abilities Tennis NC, Special Olympics, and the Outer Banks Tennis Association, our community has been able to work together and provide opportunities for all.
"My game was OK, but my serve was trash. Aly really helped me get it dialed in and i have reccomended her to all my friends!
- Max W.
"Every lesson I learned something new, and gained confidence with my tennis skills. Aly encouraged me to work my hardest, and I would not be as strong of a player as I am today without her guidance."
- Rachel M.
"I took a lesson from Aly a few months ago and really enjoyed my time. She was fun and engaging with the other adults in my clinic and gave great advice for helping me improve my game. She always has a smile on her face and has a true passion for what she does."
