A ball kid is very fast and tireless, they know the rules of the tennis game and know how to count points. It is such enthusiastic children who become ball kids for the Tallinn Open WTA 250 tournament!
In order to be ready for the tournament, the organiser of the Tallinn Open, the Estonian Tennis Association, organized a summer school for ballkids and conducted training sessions in three cities: Tallinn, Tartu and Pärnu. The fun, playful and sporty training sessions lasted approximately 2-3 hours and consisted of a practical instruction lesson, in addition to food and drink breaks and fun rest breaks. More than 100 young tennis players indicated their desire to participate.
We will see the performance of the ballkids at the Tallinn Open, which will take place from 24.09 – 02.10.2022 at Forus Sports Center in Tondi.
