This volunteer project in Mzuzu, Malawi has a unique focus, especially for a country like Malawi; it uses tennis and table tennis to educate and empower youth and children.
Tennis Kids Malawi is actively promoting table tennis and lawn tennis by creating structured and progressive coaching but also competitive structures for athletes, coaches, administrators and match officials to be involved in these sports, from beginner’s level to international games.
The mission of Tennis Kids is to provide necessary skills in table tennis and lawn tennis in a sustainable, structure, progressive and professional manner as well as introducing Tennis Kids, its objectives at various youth organizations, primary and secondary schools.
One of the main activities of Tennis Kids, where volunteers will be involved, is the actual playing and coaching of table tennis and/or lawn tennis. The daily coaching sessions will show you just how big the interest of the local youth is in getting actively involved, even though these sports are not the most well-known or popular in Malawi. Training sessions are focused at different age groups and levels of experience, and any volunteer with basic skills can contribute hugely by offering the extra help.
Tennis Kids organizes regional tournaments with funding from different sponsors and stakeholders, but is also involved in National championships by entering some of their top players. These tournaments, as well as end-of-term tournaments, provide the youth different opportunities to test their skills against each other and socialize with players from other parts of the region or country.
