Tennis builds character, develops confidence, cultivates sportsmanship, promotes teamwork, and fosters tolerance and diversity. These ideals promote balance and purpose on and off the court. While many sports can be good tools for social impact, tennis stands out because of its nature and culture. Learning to win and lose with both grace and dignity are crucially important on the court and in life; furthermore, learning to lose is an even greater test of character.
Sports will also unite social classes. ACE will have our very own Rocinha tennis team utilised for games, social integration and competitive competition between different social classes, favelas and countries.
