What is Buddy Ball Special Needs Athletic League?

Located in Clarksville and Paris, Tennessee, Buddy Ball is a way for individuals with a physical, intellectual and/or developmental disability to be able to learn and play a variety of sports throughout the year.

Buddy Ball teaches athletes teamwork and promotes self-esteem, one of the tools needed to help overcome the stigma often associated with a disability. We are aware of the extra expenses for those with special abilities. Because of this, Buddy Ball is free for all participants! We rely entirely on private donations to operate. Buddy Ball is a 501(c)(3) organization.

If you attend one game, you will realize that we are a special kind of league and have made a huge difference in many lives. Buddy Ball moves beyond a sport and becomes an affair of the heart.
