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. However it did not rise to its own expectations and Amritraj is credit to have started the first fully fledged academy.

And the Nike-Bhupathi Tennis Village took wings.
