ACEing Autism

ACEing Autism’s mission is to connect children with autism through unique tennis programs, and to develop and advance proven methods to positively impact the children, families and communities we serve. MNTC is an official program site location and Coach Donald Widener is the ACEing Autism Program Director for the state of Virginia.

Our 2017 summer and fall sessions were nothing short of amazing!  We are extremely proud of and grateful for all our volunteers!

Visit the ACEing Autism website to learn more about the organization.


Thanks to everyone in the community who participated in Trick Shot Challenge Fundraiser, raising scholarship money so more deserving children can participate in the amazing ACEing Autism program.  We far exceeded our goal.  See the results at the ACEing Autism Trick Shot Challenge page.


Each session consists of six Sunday clinics. Consistency of Volunteers is desirable but attendance at every session is not required.
