Hello, we (Babji Siva Atturu, Nidhitra Rajmohan, Smriti Bhasin, and Paavanii Pathak) are international Tennis players training in Sree Krishnaswamy tennis Centre, in Hyderabad, India. We are fundraising for our Coach Mr. Ganesh Raman to make two hard tennis courts for our players who don't have access to hard courts and are aspiring to become top-class tennis professionals. Most of the tournaments, especially the ITF and other international tennis tournaments, are held on hard courts. However, we have only clay courts which is not conducive as players struggle to play the tournaments on hard courts after practicing only on clay. Despite the problem, we still have managed to produce many players in the past and currently have six players who have attained ITF/WTA Rankings.
To address this issue, we would like to convert two out of the four clay courts into hard courts. The cost to convert is 28 lakhs Indian rupees ($40,000 USD). We have successfully raised 10 lakhs so far through bank loans and soft loans. It would be great if generous people came forward to support the good cause of our goal of giving practice to our deserving players on hard courts.
