FedEx Brings the Sport of Tennis to Underprivileged Kids


BANGKOK, September 25, 2012 - It was a day to remember for 20 children from the Mercy Centre in Bangkok who were treated to a trip to watch international tennis stars at the Thailand Open 2012. The visit was organised by FedEx Express in Thailand as part of its overall support of the tournament as the “Official Carrier” for the ATP World Tour.

Managing Director of FedEx Express Thailand and Indochina, David Carden said the trip for the children was part of the company’s commitment to give something back to society.

“These children come from very deprived backgrounds and we are simply thrilled to have the opportunity to give them their own special day. A number of our employees volunteered to help the teachers escort the children to the tennis and everyone had a fantastic time.”
