What We Do

We focus on getting children to play and learn

We all love sport, yet thousands of disadvantaged children are denied their right to play. Children in low-income communities do not have the opportunity to participate, and TWF is focused on making tennis accessible to children that otherwise would not be able to enjoy the game we all love. We offer a range of programs that focus on teaching children valuable life lessons through the game of tennis.

FROM INTRODUCTION TO FUTURE STARS

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love” Mother Teresa

THE BIG DREAM OF MERCY AND MAGGIE

Malawi is a small country in sub-Saharan Africa, nestled between Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. According to the latest estimates, it is the third poorest nation in the world. Only Burundi and South Sudan precede it in this sad ranking. With a per capita income of less than $400, it is nearly impossible to create and develop top-level athletes.

Hello Tennis

The purpose of this project is to introduce the game of tennis to children in under-resourced schools that have no tennis programs. The project involves the hosting of tennis awareness events at schools, where children spend a fun day with our coaches and discover the world of tennis. For many, this is the first time to pick up a racket and a new world of play and learning is discovered.

TEAM TENNIS

This program is focused on establishing and supporting tennis teams in less privileged schools. Our Hello Tennis events introduce the learners to tennis and then the development of a school team starts.

Intermediate Programme

When players in the school teams are identified as candidates with promising potential, they are invited to join one of our individual development programs. The Intermediate Programme is an individual coaching program.

High-Performance

Our High-Performance Programme is focused on talented players and aims to support children into competitive and ultimately professional tennis. This programme is open to any less privileged players.

Our Story

Developing children through the game of tennis

Tennis World Foundation is a non-profit organization focusing on the development of vulnerable children through the game of tennis. Research shows that children living in poverty are more prone to abusing drugs and alcohol and engaging in risky behavior, especially when they do not have access to recreational facilities and sport. Physical education is not a priority in poor areas, further limiting children’s opportunities for sport exposure.
