OPAF Receives Grant from USTA Iowa

The Orthotic and Prosthetic Assistance Fund (OPAF) and the First Volley Adaptive Tennis Clinics have received grant funding from United States Tennis Association (USTA) Iowa for clinics in their new home state.

“This grant funding from USTA Iowa will help OPAF to host at least two First Volley Adaptive Tennis Clinics in Iowa. We are looking forward to participating in the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) Adaptive Sports Camp this June in Cedar Falls and are also looking at clinics in either Waterloo or Cedar Rapids or both,” OPAF executive director Robin Burton, said in a news release.

First Volley Adaptive Tennis Clinic is one of several adaptive recreational sports programs hosted by OPAF and The First Clinics, which recently relocated to Waterloo, Iowa. OPAF develops implements, partners and hosts adaptive recreational opportunities for amputees and people with physical challenges. First Swing, adaptive golf, First Swim, McKeever’s First Ride therapeutic horsemanship and First Dive Intro to Scuba are also part of the OPAF family of clinics. New Firsts are in development and include First Dance, First Paddle (kayaking) and First Shoot (target and skeet).
