Tennis & Friends
Tennis and Friends - Health and Sport is an event, born in 2011 on the initiative of FRIENDS FOR HEALTH onlus, which combines Health, Sport, Entertainment and Solidarity for the prevention and promotion of health.
Realised for the first time in collaboration with the health staff of the Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli and CONI, Tennis & Friends is based on the union between Health and Sport for the development of psychophysical well-being.
Over the years, Tennis & Friends - Health and Sport has involved the major national institutions, which have contributed to the dissemination of the Culture of Prevention: Presidency of the Council of Ministers, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education of Universities and Research, Navy, Air Force, State Police, Carabinieri Corps, Guardia di Finanza, Fire Brigade, Italian Red Cross.
Since 2018, the event has gone beyond its native borders, reaching out to other cities and creating the first Tour for Prevention. At the local level, the Tour is sponsored by the Lazio Region and Roma Capitale, the Campania Region and the City of Naples, the Piedmont Region and the City of Turin.
Over the course of these years, the health excellences of the host territories have been involved, as well as the Italian Sports Federations, in order to increasingly emphasise the link between Health and Sport.
