ATP PROGRAM TO PROMOTE TENNIS TO KIDS WORLDWIDE
Published November 23, 1994
ATP Tour players have created a world-wide program to increase the appeal of tennis among kids and will subsidize it with $1.5M from Tour and World Championships prize money. The ATP Tour Players' "Kids Fund" program will include a street festival competition. In addition to funding the program, the ATP's Top 50 players each will make at least 10 appearances a year at activities such as clinics, autograph and photo sessions, Q-and-A sessions and other promotions. The Fund is part of the ATP's "Agenda for Progress" (ATP) SLOW DOWN: In an effort to enhance the quality of competition, the Tour will work with other int'l tennis federations to develop ball/court standards to regulate the speed of the indoor game (ATP).
