Ah, the smell of tennis balls, the sound of screeching shoes and the warmth of the sun on your shoulders—there’s a lot to be said about the draw of the tennis court. But for children from poor families, the opportunity to play this beloved sport means so much more.
At Anguilla Tennis Academy, located on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, many local children are included in after-school tennis programs and tennis camps through the support of need-based scholarships. These fundamental programs not only provide a safe, fun environment for children to learn sports skills, but they also give participants a sense of purpose, self-reliance and fairness, as well as an opportunity to interact with positive role models.
Through our partnership with Anguilla Tennis Academy, we can help sustain these vital programs for future generations, thus opening doors of opportunity through the world of tennis.
