We are looking to raise funds to help add additional mini tennis kit to the equipment packs being sent out to the locations we visit. (Video filmed in Nov 16)
Sponsors Zsig Sports are shipping out equipment packs to the schools/communities, containing; 1x mini tennis net, 8x mini racquets (plus shoulder storage bag), 36 mini tennis balls (with drawstring bag) and 4x corner lines (markers).
The additional funds raised will add to these packs to make them bespoke for eack location. This will allow even more children to play tennis in these deprived communities and mae sure the equipment really goes where it is needed. (Reward amounts take into account local duties, taxes and shipping costs).
At each location we will have an ambassador who will recieve the equipment and ensure it gets put into good use. They will also provide us with further updates, documenting the impact the project is having.
The overall goal is to promote the inclusivity and accessibility of the sport - showing that 'anyone can play tennis anywhere', allowing more people the opportunity to take part in the sport.
This first leg of the trip was through South America. We are now on our way through Central America and Mexico. You can follow the MiniTennisRTW adventure online through our website (NEW Interactive Map), instagram, facebook and twitter.
Thank you for your support and please help spread the word.
