Free school of tennis in Rakovica


We visited tennis courts of Athletic Club “21st May “in the Belgrade municipality of Rakovica, where there was a free school of tennis attended by 300 school children from July 18. The school was held under the auspices of the municipality of Rakovica, as well as several business organizations including Eko Farm Ltd.

Conceptual leader of the whole project, coach Rade Vilenica – Vili, invited us to attend the Sports day, organized on the courts for first graders of elementary school “Nikola Tesla”. For most kids it was the first encounter with tennis, not counting, of course, cheering for Nole with mom and dad on tv. Boys and girls were divided into two groups, and while one group learned about “handle”, “neck” and “head” of the tennis racket and made their very first strokes, the second group had an outdoor school class with their teacher.

At the end of the day, we saved a nice surprise for little tennis players, who did not go home empty-handed. We gave them Eko C-Vit junior sugar coated tablets with vitamin C, which will help them have a strong immune system and develop strong bones and muscles – all they need to become real champions! We hope that this great manifestation will maintain for many years to come, allowing the children to spend more time outside, than at home in front of tablet or computer.
