The Rafa Nadal Foundation has been selected as one of the nine recipients of ATP Aces For Charity 2020, the ATP’s charity program. The Association of Tennis Professionals will donate 15,000 euros to the NETS project, which has been running for nearly 10 years in India.
The grant will be specifically allocated to the nutritional assistance program, addressed to the 250 children attending the center. Even if the base of the program is the training and practice of tennis, this project covers other aspects of the child’s development, such as school support, basic health care and a daily nutritional supplement.
The ATP has stated that “this year’s grant recipients aim to make a difference to the lives of many through their work in disaster relief, childhood development and education”. Other grant recipients have been the Novak Djokovic Foundation, the Australian Red Cross and the Marin Cilic Foundation.
