Ajinkya - Tennis Coach


Ajinkya Pawar

As any other tennis player dreams, I too dreamed to be in the top ranking as a professional tennis player but even though I could not achieve it, I realized the needs of a constructive coaching system for players. While learning and implementing that knowledge I gained experience of coaching from beginners to top 10 men’s players of India.  My 10+ years of experience from coaching beginners to running my own academy has given me a complete understanding of the tennis business from coaching and business perspective.

I believe in an approach where I understand every player’s needs (mental, technical, tactical etc.) and work with the team that helps players achieve progress in the right direction.

From running my own academy since 4+years, I have gained experience of the business side of tennis and know the ways to handle clients, bring in new business, managing coaches, training coaches etc.

Career objective: 

To be able to contribute to the sport of tennis through continuous learning and working with the top tennis coaching systems across the globe

Ajinkya is no ordinary coach! He has a deep understanding of the game and the people wanting to play the game. My daughter was a very difficult player to deal with and he did all that it took to put her in the right direction. Today she is a keen tennis player and without Ajinkya this would have not been possible ever. He is a rare kind of a person.
