The British Virgin Islands Tennis Association (BVITA), in collaboration with the British Virgin Islands Olympic Committee, are set to launch a campaign to raise awareness of tennis and to encourage more residents to play the sport.

Project Consultant, Mike Barrel revealed the venture in a press briefing on May 17th 2016 at the Department of Youth and Sports.

The project dubbed ‘Tennis Revolution’ is said to introduce a number of creative and innovative ways to make tennis interesting for the residents in the Territory.

“The project is an opportunity for children and adults to approach tennis in a very different way. It is a very ambitious project; something we see can be very beneficial to the BVI. We hope to make tennis much more accessible to different people, no matter the age or the gender.”

He added that the BVITA intends to introduce the project into the schools in the BVI and their curriculum, as well as in the various communities around the Territory.

The project is scheduled to run from September 2016 to September 2017.
