August 30, 2016 in New York, USA a proclamation was signed between the International Tennis Federation and Special Olympics proclaiming the agreement of a long-term framework to provide more opportunities in the sport of tennis to people with and without an intellectual disability. The ITF is the world governing body of tennis and beach tennis, responsible for the rules of both sports and maintaining the integrity of tennis. This collaboration will have a greater social impact by addressing the need for acceptance, inclusion, respect and participation in the sport of tennis.
