Mubadala Tennis in Schools
Mubadala Tennis in Schools (MTiS) is an inspirational grassroots community initiative championed by Mubadala in order to grow the game of tennis in the UAE. It gives pupils aged 7-10 from schools across Abu Dhabi the chance to take their first steps in the sport by bringing tennis directly to their school. Ten schools across Abu Dhabi saw coaches attend their school twice a month for tennis coaching to nurture a life-long passion for the game from an early age, and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle. Schools were provided with Wilson mini-tennis kits free of cost so there are no barriers to entry and ensures everyone involved has everything they need to take their tennis to the next level. The programme has already seen success stories with J. Anurag Reddy discovered during the MTiS progamme and going on to be a multiple winner and finalist of the Mubadala Community Cup tournaments.
The programme ran right through unti May 2017, culminating in an End of Season Championship where the skills of the youngsters were put to the test.
