The Svitolina Foundation and Nova Post will hold a series of children's tennis tournaments with a grant component of UAH 1,300,000

The Svitolina Foundation is launching a series of annual tournaments, Svitolina & Stakhovsky Tennis Tour 2024, by Nova Post. With the support of the title partner Nova Post and under the patronage of the best Ukrainian tennis players, Elina Svitolina and Serhiy Stakhovsky, the Foundation continues to support talented athletes, expanding its programs and creating conditions for developing Ukrainian tennis.

"Our last year's project with the support of Nova Post showed great results, which prompted us to expand our children's programs," says Anna Popovchenko, director of the foundation. "This year, even more young athletes will be able to participate in tennis tournaments with a grant component, as these are now a series of tournaments that cover children aged 10 to 14. It is the age when the love of sports is fostered, and future champions' winning and professional qualities are tested. Qualities that are needed not only in sports but also in life."

This year, the organizers will hold four qualifying tournaments and a final tournament for two age categories: under 12 and 14. Based on the results of the qualifying tournaments, the top eight boys and girls in the two age categories will be able to participate in the final tournament, where the winners will be determined. Overall, the final tournament participants will receive a grant to develop their tennis careers for UAH 1,300,000, as well as further support and mentoring from the Svitolina Foundation.

The first qualifying tournament for the U-12 category will be held from June 4 to 7 in Kyiv at the Tennis Park tennis center, with applications accepted until May 25.

The first qualifying tournament for the U-14 category will be held from June 10 to 15, also at Tennis Park in Kyiv, with applications for athletes under 14 accepted until May 31. 

The tournament regulations are available here.

Participation is free of charge and includes partial compensation for accommodation and meals.

The dates and venues of the upcoming tournaments will be announced soon.
