Match Development Foundation

MATCH provides opportunities for talented young tennis players to achieve the level of skill needed to compete in the International tennis arena. In parallel, it supports their educational growth � ensuring that they are prepared academically to take up tennis scholarships offered by colleges and universities worldwide. MATCH focuses primarily on children and youth whose potential would otherwise go unrealised due to challenging backgrounds.
Through the Foundation’s relationship with one of South Africa’s top performing tennis academies - Anthony Harris Tennis Academy (AHTA) - beneficiaries gain access to a world-class High Performance Development Program delivered by qualified coaches and trainers. The program is a comprehensive training regime that includes tennis coaching, fitness training, psychological skills development, nutritional management, competition, and player management.
