Through events and activities such as the YONEX Junior Golf Academy, YONEX VAMOS J tennis camp, YONEX JUNIOR GROW UP PROJECT snowboard camp, and the numerous tennis clinics which world-renowned stars and pros from our native Japan help coach at, YONEX actively promotes participation in sport from a young age.
Events to Encourage Healthy Living
YONEX encourages walking as part of a healthy lifestyle through walk rallies. At these events, YONEX helps to provide a relaxed and friendly environment where anyone can participate in and enjoy the positive benefits of exercise.
