This Sunday, September 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the Plaza de Cervantes in Alcalá de Henares will become a recreational sports space for all families who want to come and enjoy a day of tennis with their children .
The organization of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals – which will be held in Madrid from November 25 to December 5 – will install a mini-tennis court adapted to the little ones.
In addition, it will provide them with all the necessary material so that they can participate in a day full of sport and fun. The activities will be led by professional coaches from the Madrid Tennis Federation. Afterwards, all participants will also be able to take part in the draw for different gifts related to the competition.
“It allows the whole family to enjoy a sports morning”
Albert Costa, current director of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals and former champion of Roland Garros as well as the Davis Cup both as player and captain, encourages all the residents of Alcalá de Henares to enjoy a morning full of tennis in an urban environment .
“Street Tennis is an important part of the entire Tennis Health program. It allows the whole family to enjoy a sports morning and also proximity. Together with the Community of Madrid, we firmly believe that it is important that this type of action is carried out in different places. It is also fortunate to be able to carry out these days in such characteristic and historical enclaves ”.
Alcalá de Henares is the third stop of these Street Tennis days, which began on September 4 in Cercedilla. Three other towns will host these mini-tennis courts throughout the month of September and part of October, in order to bring this sport closer to Madrid families.
The Davis Cup Advance
The Street Tennis are just a preview of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals and are part of the legacy that the Davis Cup Finals and the Community of Madrid want to leave in the children of the region, which already in its previous edition – in 2019 – reached to more than 4,000 young people.
The educational program is funded by the Community of Madrid and has the support of the Madrid City Council and the Madrid Tennis Federation. The program is directly coordinated by Kosmos Tennis, the organizer of the Davis Cup Finals.
