ACADEMIA DOS CHAMPS
Academia dos Champs gives children from outer Lisbon, Porto and the south of the country the opportunity to prepare their future and build their way in life through tennis.
Thanks to this nonprofit organization, 200 youngsters attend tennis lessons all year, and take part in the courses and tournaments organized near their home. They also discover the many career opportunities that the tennis environment can offer. Since 2009, at its centers based in disadvantaged neighborhoods, the association helps children develop their personal skills through tennis (concentration, tenacity, self-control, team spirit, etc.).
The Fondation LACOSTE has supported this project since 2012.
