The initiative involved the training of 30 teachers in coordination with the Ministry of Education and giving them the necessary equipment. In the four weeks since the programme’s launch, the number of participating students reached 12,143 male and female students.

The Saudi Sports for All Federation worked to design the ‘Tennis for All’ programme with the aim of preparing and training elementary, middle, and high school students of both genders, aged 6 to 18 years, whether Saudi nationals or residents. The goal is to build a diverse sports community, with an educational framework tailored to the target audience, making it an attractive and instructional opportunity within the academic curriculum. The programme aimed to stimulate a sense of healthy competition among all participants, with the Federation providing training and supervision for outstanding players and preparing them for participation in international tournaments.

The Federation is dedicated to implementing a healthy and sports-oriented community strategy, targeting various segments of society. This includes organising sports programmes and events, as well as enhancing the performance of school sports. Since its establishment in 2018, the Federation has made significant progress in forming partnerships for ambitious initiatives in sports programmes. These efforts have resulted in increased community participation.
