The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands organised a tennis clinic hosted by Paula Badosa, the Spanish professional tennis player, for young local players. In collaboration with the Tennis Association of Maldives, on 24th November 2021, 8 tennis players below the age of 14 years from Malé were invited to master their skills with the world number 8 ranking holder.
Appreciating this initiative, Badosa comments, “It brings immense pleasure to share my skills and connect with the beautiful people of this special destination. I strongly believe in inspiring and empowering passionate young players as they are the future; after all, I discovered my passion for tennis at the age of 7.”
The President of Tennis Association of Maldives, Ahmed Hafeez, adds, “I would like to thank the management of The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands for this invaluable opportunity in inspiring our ambitious young players.”
This community engagement initiative was aimed to inspire the next generation of local tennis players as part of the brand’s commitment to the local communities under the Community Footprints project. During her stay, Badosa also hosted clinics for guests as part of a series of ongoing tennis clinics the resort has planned with world-class players to offer guests a meaningful holiday experience.
