Tennis Project in Argentina

Buenos Aires , Argentina show on map

Run fun and exhilarating tennis coaching sessions for the local tennis academy and for children from the local charities in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Join our teams to help deliver sports sessions to kids. We do this in a number of sports as part of our mass participation programme, bringing as many kids together to have fun but also learn new skills in a structured environment. 

Whilst on your trip, your responsibilities will entail working at a Tennis academy located in Buenos Aires as well as hosting and running coaching, training and Tennis matches for children that are  underprivileged from the local area and charities. You will have to create your own unique programme for yourself and your students and this will include you teaching them Tennis, the rules and techniques and hopefully help them to pick up and learn the basics of the English language along the way. Because the children are at school, your training programme will have to be run after schooling hours, Monday to Friday and weekends off, giving you the chance to go off and explore Buenos Aires. 

Training sessions and matches will be held in the local 'parques' around the area in Buenos Aires.  Over the period of your stay, you will see first hand what a difference your volunteering has done and watch your students grow, become better at tennis and develop a love and passion for a sport that you have taught them to play. You will gain knowledge and experience that you will take with you and keep forever and this will benefit you and your future by gaining knowledge, experience as well knowing that you have made a difference in other peoples lives as well as your own. 

The main aim with this project is to bring kids together and give them further opportunities to play in a structured and friendly environment. We also use our coaching sessions to invite kids to our after school program where we improve education, raise health awareness and build life-skills. Sport for us is a powerful tool to teach kids important messages and we need your help to help us reach our goals.

You are certainly not limited to what you can do in your free time in Buenos Aires, as it is a big tourist destination, you can do most things however things such as swimming, water sports, diving, snorkeling, hiking etc. but with things such as climbing areas, and meditation centers you will have to travel out in order to do.
