The Netherlands

Exchange Tournament 17th June 2017

Recently a large group of our street tennis kids and their coaches assembled for a bus ride to The Hague to play matches against kids from a similar project as ours.  In order to create equal matches, the children were divided in three levels according to their tennis skills.  In the morning short singles matches were played and after a joint lunch the program continued with doubles.

Our children enjoyed this tennis trip very much. At the end all were rewarded with a medal, to emphasize that participation was more important than winning.

On the way back to Amsterdam there was a short break for a typical Dutch delight: eating pancakes.  All-in all a very worthwhile experience for our kids with respect to how competing in a sporty manner and at the same time making new friends.
