Mr. Paresh Kothari, Co-Founder & Director, The Sports Gurukul, commented, “India is a country where a vast majority of the population has grown up watching, and emulating, the likes of Mahesh Bhupathi, Leander Paes, and in recent times, Sania Mirza. The sport of tennis is fast growing in popularity amongst a vast section of our society and it is important that the enthusiasm is tapped at the right time. While it may not be possible for most people to travel to various parts of the world in order to learn newer techniques of training and playing the game, we thought why not bring the best to India itself?
