MUST KNOW: Aceing Autism is teaming up with Hightower Tennis Academy to offer Sunday afternoon tennis clinics for youths with autism at The Summit in Woodland Hills, beginning January 22. Under the direction of championship coach Ron Hightower, the special sports clinics from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. will introduce tennis skills to children with autism up to 10 years of age. Each week participants will work on various fundamentals of the game of tennis, from proper warm up techniques to forehand and backhand hits, footwork, and more. Through a series of group games and ball handling and racket drills, participants can improve hand-eye coordination while enhancing their social skills and building self-esteem. “We like to keep it fun here,” says Hightower who provides all the necessary equipment and makes use of the five tennis courts at The Summit (22219 Summit Vue Lane, Woodland Hills).
