The Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy International Master 2022 drew to a close in the beautiful setting of the Rafa Nadal Academy, in Manacor, Spain, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, with a great success in terms of audience and participation.

A journey that has started at the beginning of the year with the local stages that saw the involvement of more than 20,000 children in over 150 tournaments in 12 different countries.

The final is in fact the climax of an international journey that has touched Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Romania, and for the first time Cape Verde.

The spirit of the event was born reflecting the mission and philosophy of the Kinder Joy of moving project. The tournament, in fact, is much more than just a sports competition: it promotes values such as confidence in themselves and others, integration, friendship and respect.

The four-day finals featured young tennis players between the ages of 9 and 12 who have emerged from the national stages. Matches were held without referees, and players had the opportunity to have fun and give their best, guided by a code of fair play with a strong focus on honesty.

Numerous prizes were up for grabs at the finals, including the Fair Play Trophy, awarded to the young tennis player and coach who particularly distinguished themselves through honesty and sportsmanship. New this year was that the parent who showed the same values on the court was also awarded.
In fact, during the event there were also double matches between parents and children, as well as mixed matches between children of different genders and nationalities.
There were many occasions for celebration and entertainment: from the official ceremony to the visit to the Drach caves of Manacor and many other events always dedicated to movement but also to sharing special experiences designed for families during the exciting activities organized in the Kinder Joy of moving village.
