Addis Ababa

The programme, TDKET (Tariku and Desde, Kids Education through Tennis) located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia supports 70 children per year. Haile Gebrselassie, a former Ethiopian track athlete and winner of two Olympic gold and four World Championships titles, is a patron of the programme. Discipline in tennis and at school is a strong requirement for participation in TDKET and several children who exceed these expectations are rewarded with tennis trips to Germany. Here, they have the opportunity to meet professional tennis players such as Tommy Haas.
