Academia Sports village to resume tennis training from June 2

Hyderabad, May 29 (UNI) As the nation is preparing for life after COVID-19 lockdown, athletes, both experienced and youngsters are worried about the lack of training as it may lead to health issues.
Hyderabad-based Academia Sports Village in its bid to help their athletes retain their mental and physical strength has decided to resume their tennis camp from June 2 at Hyderabad Polo and Recreation Centre (HPRC), Aziz Nagar.
Sports Village has put in place new regiments in this challenging situation and the daily training will be conducted in two sessions- morning and evening, said Academia Sports Village CEO , Mohammed Shamusddin in a statement here on Friday.
To make the athletes stay flexible, we have introduced basic core exercises: push-ups, planks, crunches and yoga sessions, he said we are trying to make groups of three, four athletes so that they can maintain social distance while doing these things.
In addition to the existing programmes, Sports Village aims at conducting a High Voltage Tennis Camp scheduled in September/October, he said the camp will be conducted by Sports Village’s regular collaborator and prominent Croatian coach, Duje Tomasovic.
Duje has got a wealth of experience as a coach and was in Beijing with the Chinese national team during the Olympics. He has mentored some of the finest international stars from Croatia and is the head coach of Tennis Club Split from where players like G Ivanusevic, M Ancic, N Pilic, Z Franukovic, J Kostanic and P Martic rose to fame, said Shamusddin.
The Sports Village also aims to set up a scholarship programme for the top-ranked players, the CEO said.
He said Sports Village is trying to do their best to rope in world-class coaches from across the world.
The Sports Village will aim to prepare their players for the upcoming tournaments and would look to bring in more experienced athletes to create a positive learning environment, he added.
