The FIT Kinder+Sport Tennis Trophy, held by the Italian Tennis Federation, has reached its 12th edition in 2017. 147 tournaments in 19 regions engage thousands of young people aged 8 to 16.
The trophy started as a tournament circuit organized by former champion Rita Grande, in collaboration with Kinder+Sport. Thanks to the great interest it raised in the world of junior tennis, the Italian Federation made it part of its official technical programme, with the aim of involving the new generations in a culture of sports and movement.
During the Tennis Trophy, that ends with the national Master for the winners and finalists of each stage, young players have the opportunity to meet the stars of the court. Guests of past editions have included Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Fabio Fognini, Sara Errani, Simone Bolelli and many others.
