What is Game Pep Match?
Game Pep Match is a collaboration between BNP Paribas Nordic Open and Generation Pep, with the aim of promoting play and physical activity for children and youth through the use of the classic tennis wall.
The tennis wall will be available throughout Stockholm. On the painted tennis walls, children and youth can play together or individually. Rackets and balls will be provided through local community centers, associations, schools, and recreational facilities, depending on the areas.
What is Generation Pep?
Generation Pep is a non-profit organization that works to ensure that all children and youth have the desire and opportunity to live an active and healthy life by spreading knowledge and creating engagement throughout society. Generation Pep primarily focuses on two areas – physical activity and healthy eating habits.

How should one think about exercise/movement/health?
Every movement counts! We know that there are significant health benefits from just adding a few minutes of physical activity to your day. For example, adding a movement break every day or starting to take the stairs instead of the elevator can do more for our health than we might think. Incorporating simple everyday movements is an easy way to start.
What can adults do to contribute to better health for children and youth? Do you have any good tips to share?
On Generation Pep's website, there are numerous tips for adults with children in their vicinity, but above all, it's about children following our actions, not just our words. If we ourselves sit still on the couch and scroll through our phones every evening, our children will likely do the same. However, if we start moving more, our children will see that and will likely want to join in. By each of us doing what we can, we can collectively help improve the well-being of all of Sweden.
