ITFR is a privileged instrument to promote friendship and solidarity all over the world. The presence of Rotary International in all continents (168 Countries) gives ITFR the opportunity to create a network of members from different countries having the same Rotarian objectives and the same interest in tennis.

As all Rotarian initiatives this important event (taking place in Italy for the first time) will be an important achievement for the Fellowship and for Rotary in Italy and at the same time will support specific initiatives of solidarity (“Africa project”) promoted by the Club (Rotary Club Salerno Onlus) that organizes this tournament.

The international event has obtained moral patronage from the most important institutional organizations (ITF – International Tennis Federation, Tennis Europe, FIT – Italian Tennis Federation, ATP – Association of Tennis Professionals, PTR – Professional Tennis Registry, CONI – Olympic Italian National Committee, etc.).

Further information about the event can be found on the official web site www.rotarytennis.org. By registering for the newsletter you will receive the news from the organising committee. Registrations are possible exclusively on-line through the official web site by 10.00 a.m. (Italian time), 9th July 2007. We must insist on a strict registration deadline in order to complete the organization of this special event.For this reason, Fellow Rotarians, I ask you to support this event, and to pass on information to all your Rotarian colleagues and friends through District and Club websites, magazines or simply word-of-mouth. Any kind of support and participation provided by Districts and Clubs is most welcome and will contribute to this really special Rotarian meeting.I am sure that we will spend an unforgettable week of Rotarian friendship all together in this wonderful region renowned all over the world for its extraordinary natural, archaeological and artistic beauty.

I hope to meet many of you “in action” to pursue the common Rotarian service and to score another … “ace”!
