The community outreach event was supported by the Westin recreation team. Alex and the people from Pure Tennis provided racquets, balls, training equipment and their time and expertise. Through the course of the morning the kids were put through training drills and given an introduction to basic tennis techniques and skills.

Explaining The Westin's commitment to Bali's younger generation, Bipan Kapur, the resort's general manager said: "The Westin Nusa Dua, Bali has proudly mentored Dana Punia Orphanage since 2010 and it was indeed a great honor to be part of this worthwhile event. Seeing the smiles on the faces of these children this morning and the happiness generated from the tennis clinic was simply priceless."

"Our ultimate aim is to expose underprivileged children to different experiences that will have a positive impact on their general knowledge and overall development. We have conducted a number of skill-building initiatives including a distance English learning program using Skype. We hope to continue supporting these children to the best of our ability to give them a brighter future."

To allow the children to continue to develop their love of the fame of tennis, racquets donated by Rotary were given to the orphanage.
