As was told in the Federation, participants will be distributed into separate groups, proceeding from age and preparation. With each of them a separate expert will be engaged. Tennis players will have trainings in thinking that also plays an important role for the professional player.
– When I trained under the guidance of Argentinean Carlos Rodriguez – the trainer of the former first top-rated player of the world Justine Henin, we were trained in special exercises for development of thinking in players, formation of sports mentality in them. It is very useful for sportsmen. Therefore having personal experience, I want to introduce this practice in our country, – the secretary general of the Federation Eziz Dovletov said.
There is good news to schoolboys who only has decided to be engaged in this royal sport. Since the new academic year free tennis clubs will be working.

Now we want to continue this project, having attracted even more educational institutions, – Dovletov told.
