Kids day lights up AMT 2023


  • Many kids fulfilled their dream of playing alongside a few professional tennis players in the AMT 2023

Acapulco, February 26th – The traditional Kids Day, (the activity that promotes the integration of children with the sport), took off this Sunday at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC 2023, celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The Kids Day, is an opportunity for many children attending the tournament to get closer to their favorite stars playing in Acapulco, the players give them advice, gifts, play along and share their training sessions.
During the activities that marked the first day at the GNP Seguros Arena complex, a dozen tennis players made their dreams come true to some 70 children who teamed up with different players.

The day began with huge beach balls that were the joy of a grandstand that was occupied by a good number of children, demonstrating that every year Kids Day gets better and better.
For Mextenis, the company that organizes the tournament, it´s important to include the community in its activities in order to give back to Acapulco with social responsibility actions.
During the first activity, Denmark’s Holger Rune and Americans (US) John Isner and Ben Shelton played mini-tennis with a dozen kids.

Later, Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic and Americans Frances Tiafoe and Brandon Nakashima, with a boy or girl as a partner, sharpened their aim to hit huge racquets placed on the other side of the court. The activity was joined by Colombian Robert Farah and Mexican Hans Hatch Verdugo.

The Norwegian Casper Ruud participated in another activity, and after his appearance, he completed an hour of training that was watched by young and old alike.

In the stands, everything was fun as the parents of the kids cheered for their young ones, who competed alongside the players with excitement and much enthusiasm.

With an agenda of activities planned for kids and their parents, (Kids Day and Family Day), the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC seeks to integrate the community in the sport as a means of an initiation program, in this case with a first approach to the sport for all the young ones.
