Sport rhymes with health
The spirit is this: fun, tennis, aggregation, but above all prevention. For 11 yearsTennis & Friends, taking place at the Foro Italico in Rome, promotes the culture of prevention and correct lifestyles: near the fields 7 and 8, not far from the Centrale, where the decisive phase of the tournament is being played, the owners of the tickets were able to submit for free nutritional and cardiovascular check-up.
