The phases of the project

Little Tennis Champions

1. Selection phase

The Foundation, with the Little Tennis Champions project, aims to provide 26 scholarships in order to fund the school and tennis training program of the children. The selection will take place through an international scholarship competition announcement that it will be presented in Italy and in the 7 countries with the lowest PIL per capita in Europe.

2. life at the campus

The Foundation will realize the Little Tennis Champions project at the I Tennis Campus, inside the Forte Village Resort, located a few kilometers from Cagliari International Airport. The Forte Village has set up a completely renovated area within the village and close to the tennis area where the foundation will host the children during the various school and sports activities. Fellows can take advantage of complementary tennis activities, such as football, swimming, basketball, athletics and of course they can enjoy the beautiful white sand beach located inside the resort.

3. pro career

At the end of the secondary school, through an internal tennis competition, 8 students – 4 males and 4 females – will be selected to begin a professional career on the ITF, ATP and WTA circuits. I Tennis, together with its sponsors, will provide the 8 students with a support team in order to allow them to participate in different international competitions, climbing the world rankings as well as financing their entire career.

“We established the I Tennis Foundation to support disadvantaged kids who have tennis talent but unfortunately do not have the adequate means to practice this magnificent sport… let’s make the Little Tennis Champions project together!”

Simone Bongiovanni – President of I Tennis Foundation
