In partnership with USTA Montana, Billings Tennis Association, and the Big Sky Pickleball & Tennis Club, Billings Parks & Recreation is proud to offer you Love Serving Autism. Love Serving Autism’s mission is to expand life skills, especially functional communication, through multidisciplinary specialized therapeutic tennis and pickleball instruction to increase community inclusion and independence of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental as well as Physical Challenges.

The Love Serving Autism program offers introductory-level youth and adult tennis lessons that last about one hour each- all abilities, skill levels, and disabilities are welcomed! All equipment will be provided, however feel free to bring your own racquet if you would like. In a small-group setting, athletes will receive coaching from our LSA-certified coaches and volunteers, provided by Billings Parks & Recreation. The goal is to build athletes’ skills, communication levels, socialization, and enjoyment of the sport while parents and guardians cheer their athlete on from the sidelines!  

Winter 2024 Sessions: February 23rd – March 15th (Friday evenings)

Location: Big Sky Pickleball & Tennis Club

Ages: Youth (5-17) 5:30-6:30pm & Adult (18+) 6:30-7:30pm

Love Serving Autism Volunteers Needed! In order to maximize everyone’s experience with LSA, volunteers are a huge part of that success! This will allow parents the opportunity to spectate, while giving athletes one-on-one attention to increase their enjoyment of the program. For more information or to register, please contact the Billings Parks & Recreation Office.
