The second stage of the Kinder+ Sport tournament hosted last weekend by the Malta Tennis Federation at the Pembroke Rackets Club with the support of Kinder Ferrero was a roaring success. Fun activities and games were the order of the day at the blue-coloured tennis courts in Pembroke as the mentors of the tournament emphasized the values of fair play and sportsmanship. After the successful tournament last June at the Marsa Sports Club, the organisers provided another tennis platform with easy access for all children in Malta, communicating the concept of a ‘Joy of Moving’. The tournament saw over 30 participants placed according to their age, which ranged between U10 categories to U16. These matches were unique as they were played without umpires with the kids themselves deciding the points, all done in a culture of healthy competition and fair play. A number of young boys and girls will now represent Malta in the International Masters in Rome between the 20th and 25th August. Young players from nine countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Israel, Luxembourg, Monaco, Hungary and Malta will compete in Rome to determine the overall winners.
