Asciak Academy Mini Tennis Fun Tournament


The Marsa Sports Club transformed into a hub of youthful energy and tennis fervor as it hosted the eagerly anticipated Mini Fun Tennis Tournament for ages 4-7. While the weather may have been uncooperative, with wet courts outside, it didn't dampen the spirits of our

young athletes. Instead, the tournament moved indoors, where 63 mini tennis players showcased their skills, setting a new record for participation.


Despite the unexpected weather challenges, the level of play was exceptional, demonstrating the dedication and talent of our budding tennis stars. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all our coaches whose hard work and commitment ensured the success of the tournament, despite the morning's weather woes.



We extend our deepest gratitude to Malta SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY for

the generous sponsorship, which played a crucial role in making this event possible. Their support helped create an unforgettable experience for our young players and added an extra layer of excitement to the tournament.
