HILTON HEAD ISLAND (SOUTH CAROLINA):The Asian Tennis Federation (ATF) has announced a three-year partnership with Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), the largest global international organization of tennis coaches.  PTR’s mission to educate and serve tennis coaches around the world in order to grow the game is shared by the ATF and its 44 member nations.  Together the two organizations are a perfect match.

PTR will be an Official Continuous Learning Provider of the ATF, and the agreement will provide PTR with expanded opportunities to promote coach education activities throughout Asia.

  “The ATF and PTR share the view that competent, motivated and enthusiastic coaches are the best ambassadors for our sport, helping us increase participation and develop high performance players - More Players/Better Players!” said ATF President Anil Khanna.  

“We recognize the caliber and breadth of PTR’s continuing education courses have provided coaches the tools to develop players from 10 and under through adult, from recreational to advanced, all of which support the philosophy of the ITF’s successful Tennis Play and Stay Campaign.  The ATF believes that these PTR courses can benefit the Asian nations and add value to the national certification courses currently run by the member nations and the ITF.  We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with PTR to improve the level of coaching in Asia.”

  “PTR is looking forward to working with the Asian Tennis Federation and its National Tennis Federations to provide practical, high quality education for tennis coaches that can help them improve in many aspects of their day to day work,” added Dan Santourm PTR CEO.  “We are confident the Federations that choose to work with PTR will benefit greatly, and see an increase in their overall tennis growth.”
