Getting our kids active is critical for healthy growth and to fight obesity. And what better way to do that than to get them playing tennis!
But tennis isn’t really designed for little kids, the equipment and courts are just too big …until now!
Tennis Canada, with our provincial association partners, has introduced a new, affordable and accessible community program called Little Aces which “kid-sizes the game”. With smaller courts, smaller racquets and softer balls, the game is fun and easier to play.
Little Aces was launched last year to great success! Thousands of youngsters put down their video games and got involved in a sport they can now play their entire lives.
And new communities across Canada will be added each year. This year thousands of new kids will enjoy our great game in game in Mississauga, Ontario, Surrey BC, North York, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec.
Our goal is to get over 1 million kids playing tennis by 2015!
Whether it’s on a school playground, in a gym or in a park, this new “kid-sized” tennis will show our nation’s children that getting fit and healthy can be fun!
Every donation will be doubled!
So far, seven passionate tennis supporters have come forward and will match EVERY donation received by December 31, 2013!
That means your $100 gift could provide for enough equipment for not one, but two courts full of children!
Thank you to the 2013 Matching Ambassadors:
Consider a donation today because together we can make tennis matter for kids!
