Bangladesh hosts Level 1 Coaches Course
The National Tennis Centre of the Bangladesh Tennis Federation (BTF) in Dhaka was the venue for a 10-day OS/ITF Level 1 Coaches course which attracted twenty-four candidates from different parts of the country. The participants not only comprised good male players but also current Davis Cup players and probables for the team, thereby making the course very special due to their keenness to learn new techniques.

Kawaljeet Singh, the ITF course expert from India, conducted the Play Tennis course during the first three days where candidates enjoyed the new concept of “Serve-Rally-Score”. Candidates were keen to experience the new, easy and fun drills for introducing tennis to beginner and starter players.

“With the help of this course I can teach better drills to beginner and starter player allowing them to play tennis from day one. Attending the Level 1 course I have another dream to be a good coach," commented Ranjan Ram, a Davis Cup player.

At the certification ceremony, organized by the BTF at the beautiful restaurant ”Koyla”, Md. Shariar Alam, President of the Bangladesh Tennis Federation welcomed chief guest, Mohammed Anisur Rehman Dy., Secretary General of the Bangladesh Olympic Association (BOA) along with other officials from the BOA. Mr. Ishtiaq Ahmed, newly elected General Secretary of the BTF, thanked Olympic Solidarity and the International Tennis Federation for bringing the course to Bangladesh and for their support to the game of tennis. Recognition was also given to all those responsible for the smooth organization of the course, especially Md. Motiur Rehman ”Julius”, who not only coordinated the course but also helped as interpreter, starting each day with his new slogan “Age no bar - tennis khelo baar baar” which means in Bangla "No age bar and play tennis again and again!"

Training of Coaches

Each year, over 60 countries worldwide participate in the ITF coaches’ education programme by organising a course for national coaches. The ITF can assist with the training of coaches through a variety of formats.

a) Recommended Level I and Level II Syllabus

A Level I and Level II syllabus is now available in English, French and Spanish for use by member nations who currently do not have a system of certifying coaches. This ready made syllabus makes it easier for National Associations to introduce a system of coaches’ education.

b) National Courses

The main aim of the ITF’s coaches’ education programme is to help nations to become self sufficient in this area. Appropriate ITF experts are available to work with coaches and prospective tutors in countries which do not have their own system. The Level I and / or Level II syllabus is generally used as the basis for these courses.

c) Olympic Solidarity

Many of the national coaches’ courses conducted each year are funded through Olympic Solidarity, the funding agency of the international Olympic Committee. Any National Association wishing to benefit from an Olympic Solidarity course for tennis coaches should write to their National Olympic Committee to request the programme. Once approved, the ITF will then arrange the course in consultation with the relevant National Association and appoint the expert.

d) Regional Workshops

Regional Workshops are held every two years in Asia, South America, Central America and Africa. These are major workshops involving top level international speakers and are designed to provide a forum for coaches’ education for the top coaches of specific regions.

e) Worldwide Coaches Workshop

This biennial gathering brings together the world’s top coaches from over 80 nations to exchange views and present latest ITF findings.

Administrators' Education

The ITF Leadership, Management and Administration Manual, produced in 1997 is a comprehensive guide to running a National Tennis Association. Available in English, French and Spanish, this Manual touches on the most important aspects for the successful administration of a National Association as well as containing detailed information on ITF programmes and activities.
Regional seminars for administrators of National Associations are conducted regularly by ITF experts. These seminars, lasting five days, are interactive workshops and cover aspects such as leadership, planning, time management, marketing and the Role of a National Association.

ITF Coaches Commission

The Commission, which meets biannually, comprises of many coach educators from the leading tennis nations in the world. Without the continued assistance of these educators, whom serve as representatives of their National bodies, the improvement of coach education worldwide would not be possible.

Every two years, a new Coaches’ Commission is appointed by the Committee of Management. The Commission for the period 2008 - 2010 is as follows:

Chairman: Mr. Ismail El Shafei (BOD)
Members: Chairman: Mr Ismail El Shafei (EGY / BoD), Mr Hemant Bandre (IND),Mr Hans Peter Born(GER), Ms Debbie Kirkwood (CAN), Mr Cesar Kist (BRA), Mr Gustavo Luza (ARG), Mr Steve Martens (BEL/GBR), Mr Craig Morris (AUS), Mr Hichem Nasser (EGY), Mr Bernard Pestre (FRA), Mr Hichem Riani (TUN), Mr Alberto Riba (ESP), Mr Paul Roetert (USA), Ms Larissa Shaerer (PAR), Mr Minoru Ueda (JPN), Mr Frank van Fraayenhoven (NED), Mr Paul Lubbers (USA) - Observer

14th ITF Worldwide Workshop comes to a close.
Two hundred and ninety coaches from 90 nations attended the 14th ITF Worldwide Coaches Workshop, entitled ‘Quality Coaching for the Future’, which ended on Saturday 22 October. The workshop was hosted by the Turkish Tennis Federation in the Club Ali Bey Hotel, Antalya, and featured over 60 presentations from a series of renowned international speakers.

Keynote speaker Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario gave an on-court presentation about the process and drills required to bring female players to the top level. She was also involved in a round-table panel discussion with speakers that included Steven Martens (Belgium’s current Davis Cup and former Fed Cup Captain), Kathleen Stroia (Vice-President of the WTA Sport Sciences & Medicine and Professional Department) and Georges Goven (France’s Fed Cup Captain), which was one of the most successful sessions during the five-day workshop.

Sixty per cent of the presentations took place on court, which supplied participants with valuable practical information. Steven Martens and Kenneth Bastiaens (BEL), both presenting for the first time at a Worldwide Coaches Workshop, hosted two excellent sessions, as did Bruce Elliott and Machar Reid (AUS), who have both presented at previous workshops. Lecture room presenters included Jofre Porta, current coach of Carlos Moya, with whom he has been working with since the age of six; and Ann Quinn, former National Director of Coach Education for Tennis
Australia.

In a successful new format, workshop sessions were held simultaneously with three 20-minute presentations in each of three rooms. These sessions gave participants the opportunity to choose both topics and speakers. In addition ‘Free Communication’ sessions allowed participants to choose theme specific rooms to listen to speakers presenting findings from their own research projects.

The ITF would like to thank the Turkish Tennis Federation and Club Ali Bey staff for their hard work in assisting the ITF, as well as all the participants, speakers and ITF staff involved.
