Anderson Supports Tennis For Africa Initiative


Kevin Anderson, ambassador of Tennis for Africa, 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.
“It is a pleasure for me to give my support to this important initiative and to be here for Tennis for Africa,” said Anderson.

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.
