Heart-felt ExperiencesDr. R. Jayaraman, Director of Physical Education, BIT Sathy
The tennis coaching was started in the year 2019 at our college premises. In this regard, the management has magnanimously accepted to recruit 2 specialized tennis coaches in the department of physical education. Besides this our management has sponsored several lakhs to purchase advanced coaching equipment like Ball feeder, Topspin pro, Tennis ball training net and etc. in the year 2019 around 12 kids were attended the coaching sessions. The Department of Physical Education (DPE) has been expressing our hearty thanks to Dr. R. V. Natarajan Prof. IT for taken the initiative to start the tennis coaching classes. During the pandemic lockdown period, we have bunged all the coaching sessions. After the Govt. relaxation the Department of Physical Education has resumed the tennis coaching with 3 kids. The DPE has introduced more attractive coaching & fitness sessions and also provides healthy refreshment to all the kids with the help of the parents. Now it’s grown up to more than 60 kids. For the convenience of the kids, we have to organize four coaching sessions a day. Now the academy is named BIT Tennis Academy. DPE has created a logo and office bearers for BIT Tennis Academy. Recently, some of our academy kids have participated in various tournaments and brought laurels to the BIT Tennis Academy. The kids are attending the coaching sessions with great enthusiasm and cheers. The management and BIT tennis academy are ready to extend our dedicated coaching session to all the kids throughout the year and we are expecting the parents to support and motivate their kids to play in the forthcoming years.
