23 October 2019
Grab the chance for your child to be part of all the on-court action along with a star-studded line-up
(Update Dec 11, 2019: Australian player Ajla Tomljanović replaces Amanda Anisimova for the women's game due to a sports injury.)
Children in the UAE can now sign up for a chance to play a major role in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship (MWTC), with registration open to become a Ball Kid at the event.
If your child is between 12 to 17 years old, they can sign up for the Mubadala World Tennis Championship Ball Kid Programme.
Taking place on December 19 - 21 this year, the programme is operated by the Zayed Sports Academy at the International Tennis Centre at Zayed Sports City. Those who are chosen to be an MWTC Ball Kid, will receive seven weeks specialised training on how to perfect their on-court duties.
The carefully chosen select group will contribute to keeping a world-class tennis Championship moving on-court. Along with the responsibility of helping keep a smooth game operation, they'll be witnessing the tennis matches up close, which includes World No. 2 Rafael Nadal; World No. 4 Daniil Medvedev and five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova and Amanda Anisimova in the women’s match.
This year, the Championship has been moved from its traditional spot on the calendar by a week, allowing UAE tennis fans and visitors to enjoy the event's festival atmosphere, including the Tennis Village which promises heaps of entertainment and activities for the whole family.
