Hundreds turned out on Dubrovnik’s main strip – Stradun – when it turned into a miniature tennis court on the weekend for ‘Kids Day’ to end off the Dubrovnik International Tennis Camp, which was run by Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic.
In its second consecutive year, the Dubrovnik Summer Tennis camp gave kids the chance to learn some skills from the legend of Croatian tennis. Ivanisevic, together with a number of other coaches, put 18 kids from all over world through their paces in the week-long camp. This year there were kids from the USA, Sweden, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina in Dubrovnik hoping to learn something from the man who was once ranked number 2 in the world.
Ivanisevic hopes that the camp grows larger in the future and more kids take up the sport of tennis in Croatia. “We Dalmatians are very talented with a ball, so I hope it remains that way,” said Goran.
