Buffalo, NY – Two tennis tournaments will be played simultaneously in Williamsville Friday, February 28th.

The Buffalo Niagara Community Tennis Association and Summit Educational Resources will host a fundraiser for the Adaptive Tennis Program. The national tennis program teaches Autistic children how to play tennis.

It will be established in Buffalo this May. But one local autistic boy is already taking lessons. WBFO' S Eileen Buckley brings us his story.

Friday's fundraiser and tennis matches take place at the Village Glenn Tennis Club and Miller Tennis Club, both in Williamsville. The event runs from 6:30-to 11 p.m. It will include silent auction.
