The Tennis Village was born in September, 1995, in Bangalore, India, in the single-minded pursuit of a passion “to teach the game, and teach it right”. To shape young talent into mature champions. To encourage a spirit of winning and an acceptance of loss. To give one’s all to the game called tennis. It was a father’s dream that built the Tennis Village. CGK Bhupathi, ranked in his time, Junior No. 1 in the country, took his passion for the game a step further. To mould his son, Mahesh Bhupathi, into the champion he is today, CGK set up India’s first tennis academy in Chennai – the Tennis Clinic in the seventies.
