GARMCO BUILDS MINI TENNIS COURT

(Manama, 24 June 2015): GARMCO, the Bahrain-based international aluminum rolling mill and one of the largest downstream aluminum facilities in the Middle East, today announced that it has built a mini tennis court for children at the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society premises.

Establishing the court at the Society will enable children there to further develop their talent and social skills as well as enhance their ability to focus and react through sport
. This will help children with Down syndrome develop the skills to play and compete alongside other children and support and encourage their development despite their disabilities 

GARMCO also hired a tennis coach, Mr. Hamad Al Fardan, to train 15 children with Down syndrome for a one year period at the center. Mr. Al Fardan has over eight years of coaching experience and is a Bahraini and internationally certified coach having received many certificates including those from the Bahrain Tennis Federation and the International Tennis Federation (ITF), where he has reached to Advanced Level 2. Mr. Al Fardan has also competed on the Bahrain Tennis National Team in the Gulf Cup in Qatar and UAE, Future International Championship in Kuwait, the Open Arab Tennis Tournament in Qatar and many other local and regional championships.

Commenting, Ms. Hind Al Sabbagh Head of Corporate Communications at GARMCO, said: “We are delighted to announce our further support and cooperation with the BDSS.
  We’re pleased to be playing our part in giving children with disabilities the support and opportunity to develop their talent, compete and have fun. Children with Down syndrome have great potential despite their disability. With the support of a professional trainer like Mr. Al Fardan we are sure that the children will develop strong skills and have the opportunity to build on their talents and social nature. We look forward to seeing the children enjoy the tennis court and to building awareness of the great potential that lies within every child.” BDSS, which was established in 1998, works towards the development and provision of local service to individuals with Down syndrome in the areas of health, psychology, education and social services. BDSS also provides direct and indirect support to individuals with Down syndrome, their parents and their families.
