"1000 rackets for Haiti"

To make the auction accessible to as many fans as possible, bids will start at 30€ and run for 10 days, from Friday 7 May until Monday 17 May.

Funds raised will be used to buy equipment and send it to Haiti, where Peace and Sport is coordinating the Haitian Olympic Committee’s project to implement sports activities for 8 to 20 year-old Haitian youngsters living in survivor camps, designed to help them overcome their trauma and to resume living together in confidence through the practice of sport.
