Members of the ATP Coach Programme in association with ATP have launched a new campaign on Givergy to give exclusive fan experiences with the main aim to support coaches affected the most by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This initiative is done through a series of prize draws and silent auctions; with private coaching sessions with coaches such as Paul Annacone, Boris Becker, Goran Ivanisevic; as well as Ivan Lendl, Patrick Mouratoglou and Carlos Moya up for grabs.
These will take place at ATP Tour and Grand Slam events in 2021; with a three week window between 8-29 June 2020 seeing these up for grabs.
“It is great to see coaches and tournaments offer some truly incredible and unique experiences to our fans,” said Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the ability of many people to work and coaches are no exception. The fact this initiative also helps fellow members of the tennis family during this uncertain time shows the unity and innovative spirit of tennis.”
“Coaches play a huge role in our sport and we wanted to do something creative to support the wider coaching community. I am proud so many tennis icons and tournaments are getting behind this,” said Dani Vallverdu, ATP Coach.
“I am really excited for fans to enjoy these unique tennis experiences and hopefully leave with some unforgettable memories.”
