◆Information on this tennis camp.
It will be held following last year.
In March 2011, a great earthquake hit the northeastern part of Japan.
8 years have passed since then.
In order to keep the memory on the day refreshed and pass it over to the next generations, and in order to avoid an unnecessary damage again, we will be visiting Ishinomaki City and Higashimatsushima City in Miyagi Prefecture for learning. No only will this camp include tennis activities but lot of events.
The following are planned events:
◆ Earthquake disaster learning
☆ Ishinomaki city tsunami reached area tour ("Ganbaro Ishinomaki" signboard, etc.)
☆ lecture from the damaged in Higashimatsushima
☆ Disaster training at "Kiboccia!
◆ Tennis activities
☆ Competing against the team in Ishinomaki City
☆ Volunteer lessons for the children in Ishinomaki City
☆ Participation in Ishinomaki Citizen Convention (only for those who want to)
☆ Social gathering with the Ishinomaki City tennis players
(enjoy some local seafood and drink local "sake".)
We will make some donation to the tennis club of the school in Ishinomaki City.
Matsushima, the lodging area, is one of the three most beautiful views in Japan.
BBQ in Matsushima on the first night after the tennis practice is scheduled.
On the next morning, we can enjoy the spectacular view of Matsushima Bay.
The dinner on the second day will be in a social gathering in Ishinomaki City.
Let's enjoy local seafood and local sake.
Last year’s camp was comprised of about 10 people. All of them told that each of them had an opportunity to learn and recognize a lot about the disaster.
The leaders of the camp are Oikawa and the former coach of Japanese coach Deaf Tennis, Kimihiro Naito.
As far as the meeting/ leaving is concerned, to join us directly at Ishinomaki City as well as to leave us there is possible as your option.
Partial participation also is available.
Of course, participants from the Tohoku area are welcome and appreciated.
Please contact us if you are interested in this camp. I hope to be with as many tennis enthusiasts as possible there.
