Challenge Demetrio Albertini and Pierluigi Casiraghi to a Game of Paddle Tennis.
Challenge Italian football legends Demetrio Albertini and Pierluigi Casiraghi to a game of paddle tennis.
"It's a sport you should try", says Demetrio Albertini, 'promoter' of the sport that's really catching on. Last year the former AC Milan star opened 4 courts in the CityLife area in Milan.
Born in Argentina, paddle tennis is similar to regular tennis. The court (20 m x 10 m) is surrounded by glass and nets that can be used as part of the game, there's no "out of play" because you can use the sides of the court, too.
According to Albertini, who plays paddle tennis twice a week, it's a great sport for two reasons. «First of all because it's easy to learn. Even those who have never picked up a racket before can enjoy this sport. Also, it develops a great sense of competition. Casiraghi, my usual doubles partner, and I, would like our challengers to take to the court with a helmet and shin guards!... ».
Pierluigi Casiraghi has also recently taken up the sport and he's good at it, of course! Are you ready to take on the Italian world football legends?
This experience is valid for two people and will take place in Milan on a date to be mutually agreed between Albertini, Casiraghi and the auction winner.
CAF is a non-profit organization that was founded in Milan in 1979 by Ida Borletti. It’s the first center in Italy that hosts and takes care of minors who have been victims of violence and abuse, and it has welcomed and taken care of over 800 minors in the past 30 years. It’s a temporary home for children who have fallen victim to serious situations and who need to find a competent, stable and specialized environment where they can talk about their traumatic experiences before returning to their families or to their foster/adoptive parents.
The association tries to understand the personal family and social motivations behind why the parents where not able to offer adequate care and safety to their children. Over the past 30 years, CAF has made a name for itself as a community with an extremely specialized method in caring for abused children. Social workers also work with the center for some of their most serious and difficult cases due to the center’s specialization in psychology and education.
