UGANDAN GRASSROOTS TENNIS PROGRAM
The UGANDAN GRASSROOTS TENNIS PROGRAM aims to give young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in Uganda a brighter future through sport. The organization provides around fifty children from Kampala with free tennis courts and lessons as well as physical instruction.
Today, the children spend two hours twice a week at the Lugogo tennis center in Kampala. In this secure environment, the youngsters train to improve their tennis skills. Through regular participation in the program, they can subsequently apply for scholarships to attend local high schools, or even European or US universities if they reach the required level.
The Fondation LACOSTE has supported this project since 2013.
