Founder Federico Coppini with Stellenbosch Deputy Mayor Jeremy Fasser at the opening of the Tennis World Foundation Ida’s Valley Tennis Centre.
Tennis World Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2019 in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The foundation was established by tennis media entrepreneur Federico Coppini who is the CEO of Tennis World Magazine International. Being a well experienced coach and father himself, he has seen the developmental benefits that tennis offer and is inspired to make the game widely accessible to children.
TWF works in partnership with Tennis South Africa (TSA), Western Cape Tennis, Winelands Tennis Federation and the Stellenbosch Municipality, to bring about sustainable tennis development in the region.
Hi, I’m Federico Coppini, born in Ferrara (Italy) and completely in love with tennis and life. I made South Africa my home x years ago and I share my passion for tennis through the Tennis World Foundation.
I started Tennis World foundation because I want to share my passion for the game and give children from all economic backgrounds the opportunity to play and to reap the benefits of the game. Tennis offers children very important life lessons, and it helps them to develop into well rounded adults.
Starting the foundation was a new chapter in my life and my aim is to give children the chance to dream and to believe in a future that they have never imagined before.
I have created a career around the game and own the largest tennis sector website in the world (www.tennisworldusa.org) I now aim to dedicate my time and commitment to the foundation and the raising of young champions.
