Tennis serves up opportunity for rural and regional kids
Monday, January 08, 2018
Australia's next generation of tennis champions will take to the courts for the Red Energy Australian Made Foundation Cup in Adelaide today.
The interstate tournament is an initiative of the Fed Cup Foundation and is the only event that provides young children from rural and regional Australia the opportunity to compete at a national level.
The best and fairest male and female players will each receive a $1,000 cheque to go towards their professional development.
“The Red Energy Australian Made Foundation Cup reminds us all about the importance of nurturing local talent – whether that be the next generation of athletes, farmers or manufacturers,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said.
“Alongside Red Energy, the Australian Made Campaign is proud to support rural and regional Australia through this tournament.”
The competition will run from 8-12 January at West Lakes Tennis Club. Members of the public are encouraged to drop in throughout the week and catch some of the action.
