7 Questions & Answers about Sashka’s “Big Tennis Trip” in September-October 2017

Big Tennis Trip 2017 - preparation started

Yes, we are trying to do this again! This time, we take more timeframe to prepare ourselves and make this experience even more exciting for us & interesting to follow for our friends & readers (we will blog, tweet, youtube & live-broadcast every single day of our trip!).

So what is the “Big Tennis Trip”? For 2 months, day by day, Oleksandra (accompanied by her coach Mate) is going to play street tennis on central squares of European cities. One day – one city (with several days off, for sure)! So everybody can join Sashka and play a couple of points vs. her – no need to go to a tennis club!

Why are we doing this? How exactly is it going to look like? What cities do we plan to visit? How can you participate in this breathtaking event organisation? Why do we think this trip is REALLY important not only for Sashka, but for many people around the world? Read 7 Q&As below (and do not forget to ask more questions if you have them).

BTW, if you wanna ask something more, do not hesitate to do it (be sure to include @sashkatennis in your q’s text so we definitely see it).

On Tuesday, 27 December, we are departing to “Big Tennis Trip“.

This is NOT a tournament.

This is NOT a practice.

This is NOT a camp.

We (me and my Dad) are going to visit 50 European cities, with just two tennis bags and mini-tennis net, and play tennis on their central squares! Continue Reading
