Stuttgart: A Day At The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

In Stuttgart, about 25 students from a Stuttgart-area special needs school at Favoritepark Ludwigsburg got the chance of a lifetime to enjoy an inside look at all the action at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

They spent the day on the grounds, getting a behind-the-scenes tour of the tournament and even enjoyed a practice session with Anna-Lena Grönefeld and Kveta Peschke. The kids totally enjoyed their unforgettable experience at the tournament.
