This unique project seeks to provide children with safe spaces to play, foster healthy habits, and educate them about the importance of physical activity from early childhood. Sport influences not only the physical and health aspects of development but also spreads messages of peace, friendship, and equality among people, which is the key message of the project.
The first day of activities will kick off July 16th when Marin Čilić, fellow athletes and gathered children will play tennis in front of St. Donat Church in Zadar. The Kid’s Day programming will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Registration for the Kids Day have begun and are active on the official Facebook and Instagram channels of the Foundation. From 2:00 to 11:00 p.m. on July 17th, at the pool terrace of the Višnjik Sports Center, educational workshops for children and various promotional and entertainment activities for the whole family will be organized in the Tennis Village.
Some of the themes include self-care, nature, and sustainability. In addition to the main televised competition taking place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the central tennis court of the Sport Center Višnjik, visitors will have the opportunity to socialize and enjoy the various programs prepared. For visitors without tickets, the final matches will be broadcasted on a video wall.
All program details, workshop schedules, and the final list of event participants are available on the Foundation’s website and official Facebook and Instagram channels.
