Cooperation of Tenis Center Dubrovnik with Villa Dubrovnik – a modernist Gem in the historic heart
of the Adriatic, resulted in Dub Bowl increasing and promoting its humanitarian values. There is
hundreds of talented and hard working kids who are unable to play sport because of the cost and
players from poor regions who rarely have opportunity to succed.
Following the criterion of hard work, talent and determination, this year Dub Bowl and Villa
Dubrovnik recognized 2 local croatian players and offered them free participation in Dud Bowl
tournaments as well as free acomodation in Villa. During the first year of working together, Villa
Dubrovnik together with its friend apartments and hotel offered accomodation to other families who
otherwise would not be able to aford and participate in this unique tournament. In future years, we
hope to bring humanitarian part of tournament to even higher level and together with Villa
Dubrovnik ensure families to come and join us in Dubrovnik on one of most unique kids tournament –
