Tennis as a Lifelong Sport

Manner Kids TennisManner Kids Tennis

In 2005, the Japan Tennis Association started a project called “Manner Kids Tennis” with the aim of teaching children the basic social skills and manners through tennis.
Today, Manner Kids Project, a non-profit organization sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and Japan Amateur Sports Association, offers various programs for elementary schools, junior sports clubs, regional comprehensive sports clubs and other entities nationwide with the cooperation of Makiko Suzuki, the Grand Master of Ogasawara School of Etiquette.
The Manner Kids Tennis project not only instructs children on how to play tennis but also teaches them about manners, how to express consideration and kindness toward others and the necessity to maintain good posture among other things, thereby helping them acquire the skills they are going to need to live in society.

Fuzzy tennis originated in Yokohama. Players use short-handle rackets and play in a badminton court. Since the sport is played with a sponge ball, even novice players can enjoy rallies.

Why don’t you try fuzzy tennis, a sport that people of all ages can enjoy together?
