One Love Tennis hosted a ‘Play-Day’ event for a group of 15 children from St Patrick’s boys’ home in Sliema.

The event involved adolescents and young people (aged 10 to 18) living at the home to be introduced to and learn tennis, but more importantly to play and have fun.

Michael-Ray Pallares, who founded One Love Tennis in 2011 and has travelled all over the world organising events for underprivileged and low-income youth, said: “I’ve been blessed to have been able to organise events in five continents and regardless of where the children are from, they are all just children in need of love.

“Through the vehicle of tennis, I am able to spread the love all over the world and promote the wonderful game of tennis to children who more than likely would never get the opportunity to ever play the sport.”

The event was held in collaboration with assistant head of care, Fr Robert Falzon, SDB, and Ursuline Sisters mother superior Madeleine Cauchi.

The next project for One Love Tennis will be to not only organise another exhibition and Play-Day for the children at St Patrick’s, but also to fundraise enough money to donate appropriately sized nets, racquets and balls to the school so that the children can play tennis all year around.

Organisations and individuals who wish to donate or learn more about the project are asked to contact onelovetennisinc@gmail.com.
