Who We Are
Tennis For All is a Ugandan registered Sports and Educational development charity organization, helping children from disadvantaged homes reach their full potential in sport, education and health, founded in 2012 by a group of young Ugandan tennis coaches with an aim of improving the life prospects of low-income, unprivileged children and youth in the District of Kampala through athletic and academic enrichment.
We seek to keep children off city streets during school time, in a safe environment they can trust; to engage them in productive activities that teach discipline, build confidence, improve school performance, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. We empower our students to achieve their highest potential by helping them develop meaningful values and critical life skills that will lead them to make constructive life choices. TFA builds champion in Life and in Sports. Today we provide free tennis instruction by experienced instructors, educational support, and positive opportunities to more than 200 children annually, most of whom participate at after-school and community programs. Using tennis as the primary motivator, the programs teach positive, rewarding lessons, build confidence, and provide a framework of personal discipline.
Uganda Registered Charity, No. 211566.
We are committed to using sport as a tool to develop disadvantaged and vulnerable youth. We do this by:
- Using direct sports coaching – for its health benefits, improved emotional well-being and increased life skills (teamwork, leadership, decision making, communication).
- Using sport to discuss critical issues – by delivering curriculums on topics such as HIV/AIDS awareness in a fun and interactive manner on the sports field.
- Using sport for improved education – by providing pathways to success for talented and dedicated individuals through scholarships to top local schools and tertiary education.
What We Do
Tennis For All supports two core programmes, built up by a number of projects in schools we work with. The first is our Mass Participation Programme which gives hundreds of disadvantaged kids the chance to play and enjoy the sports they love. The second is our Schools of Excellence Junior programme which provide academic schooling for aspiring athletes.
