The 2017 Beach Blast was a Great Event!

The weather turned out great for the 2017 Virginia Beach Blast! With Special Olympic Athletes from all across Virginia and local volunteers, the Beach Blast was held at the Owl Creek Tennis Center in Virginia Beach on April 22, 2017. Using a “Unified” format in which a Special Olympic Athlete paired with a volunteer, the teams played in a super set, round robin style matches. In addition to the on-court doubles play, the players, volunteers and spectators were treated to live music throughout the event, provided by The Cube.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to make this tournament a success!

A special thank you goes to our sponsors; The Virginia Beach Tennis Patrons, Owl Creek Tennis Center, and Robert E. Brown.
