Kevin Anderson, the big server from South Africa and former world number 10 has voice his support for Tennis for Africa initiative. He attended the press conference on the initiative “TENNIS CAMPS” at Salaria Sport Village.
The scholarships for youths from Tanzania are developed in the framework of a social developing project for youth through the promotion of sport and in particular or the discipline of tennis. Four children from Tanzania have been selected to attend one-month tennis camps organised in Italy at the TEAM 2001 Tennis Academy of Gianfranco Barbiero in Padoa and at the BFD Tennis Academy of Fabrizio Di Meo in Rome.
The initiative starts in June. The project is totally financed by private donations, receives the support of the two academies and is sponsored by TopSeed and Diadora. “It is a pleasure for me to give my support to this important initiative and to be here for Tennis for Africa,” said Anderson.
Lorenzo Turchi, chairman of the Tennis for Africa association also attended the press conference and supported the cause. Anderson is currently playing at the Geneva open where he reached the quarter-finals. Also Read: Wawrinka: 'I'm not going through a crisis'
