As every year, on the eve of the 2018 Roland-Garros tournament, 200 young Apprentis d’Auteuil gather at Haras de Jardy for their inter-establishments tournament. On this occasion, Nathalie Dechy, member of the Fondation LACOSTE and a great professional tennis player, was present and exchanged some balls with these kids for their biggest joy.
