MTWT is led by Matt Smith, LTA British Coach of the Year 2011, and former Head Coach at University of Bath. He has spent the first sixth months of 2017 in South/Central America and Mexico, visiting a total of 16 countries, and delivering 56 sessions to 670 children.
The project is supported by Zsig Sports, a specialist tennis equipment provider, and they have donated equipment packs worth £300 each. The packs are shipped to all the sites visited and over 2,500 children have had the chance to play within their local communities.
The project was given an initial boost through MTWT’s crowdfunder site earlier in the year – raising £711 towards the project. MTWT has gained further support from FitBit and Rebo Wall, who are providing additional equipment to support the project on the move.
MTWT is looking for any coaches/volunteers who want to joing the adventure. Or anyone who is going away on holiday/travelling and would like to deliver free tennis sessions for the project.
The project is gaining momentum as the team prepare for the next stage of the adventure through Eastern Europe and Asia.
