At the start of 2020 SJRS Tennis which was previously lead by Mohamed Hassan Merali was taken over by new hands. The new team led by Mohammad Chagpar along with Sajjad Govani and Zainali Janmohamed had an exciting journey ahead. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus all plans had to be put on hold but we are very excited to announce that our first tennis session was underway on Monday 13th July!
Back with a BANG!
With this being the first session since the re-opening of tennis we needed something grand to kick start the season. Something that would give players the same excitement they felt when the first announcement was made to say you could finally see your extended loved ones, the same excitement they had when they picked up their first racket and for this to happen we had to find a venue that would give our members an exceptional experience!
Our first tennis session was therefore run at the Moor Park Tennis Club and our players got to dust of their rackets and start hitting some of their most favourable shots with the historic Moor Park Mansion as the backdrop.
With a range of different surfaces (Astro, Grass, Carpet) this unique setting was thoroughly enjoyed by every attendee. On top of that we had a fantastic Coach on hand to help us get back into the swing of things through various drills and matches. Tennis has been an ever growing sport within our community and our aim over the next term will be to ensure that there is increased value from our sessions through various developments such that our players can accelerate their improvement to the next level.
Before we end we would like to recognition the achievement of Mohamed Hassan and the wider SJ/SJRS team for investing time and energy into tennis and the wider racket sports over the past few years. There is huge potential that has been recognized and inshAllah we along with your support will continue to grow this further.
