Football is the best-known and most popular sport on the African continent. A reality shared by many other parts of the world. If basketball, handball or karate happens to make a place behind the round leather, tennis, golf, fencing, badminton, gymnastics to name a few, are sports disciplines still relegated in the background. For cultural, financial and infrastructural reasons, Africa is still lagging behind. Nevertheless actions exist to reverse the trend.
Abake’s Foundation wants to participate in the emergence of sport as a whole on the continent. Accustomed to work in the social through its actions on health, education and entrepreneurship, it has decided to invest in another field. That of game and the competition.
For its first sporting activity, under the high sponsorship of the Benin Tennis Federation, Abake’s Foundation in partnership with the Tennis Club de l’Amitie organize: Abake’s Tennis Clinic and Competition. This event, which will start from July 25th to July 26th, 2018, will focus on the minors, cadets and juniors for an upgrade course that will culminate on a series of competitions on July 27th, 28th and 29th, 2018. For Abake’s Foundation, Africa could still hatch the next Yannick Noah or Serena Williams.
