HKJC Tennis Rocks was launched in September 2016 as a three-year programme supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to promote tennis to individuals of all ages and social statuses. As the programme was successful and well-received in the past 3 years, Phase 2 programme extends for 3 years, starting from September 2019.
It consists of four programmes to benefit four targeted social groups: primary school students (Tennis Rocks), students with special educational needs (Special Tennis Rocks), PE teachers (Teach the Teachers Tennis), and retirees & seniors (Senior Tennis Rocks).
