MEET LEIGH

This is Leigh. She is 11 years old now. She has been playing tennis since she was three. This video was taken when she was five. There are at least 20 more children with her extraordinary ability. The only resource they have is OTA. OTA takes children from the age of three and through tennis, helps them develop not only tennis skills but life skills. Everyone benefits, though not all have Leigh’s potential. With your help, Leigh and others like her might someday play on the world stage, might someday be number one in the world! This will not happen without OTA and without your support. Please consider a generous donation now to help Leigh and the other 1,250 children in the OTA program reach their full potential.
