The inaugural meeting of the newly formed Indian Tennis Players Association (ITPA) is to be held April 6 in Bangalore during the Davis Cup Group I Asia/Oceania first round play-off between India and Indonesia April 5-7.

"The Inaugural General Body of @TennisITPA will be held on 6th April in Bangalore during the @DavisCup tie #India v Indonesia," tweeted All India Tennis Association (AITA) vice-president Karti Chidambaram Sunday.

The ITPA was formed Feb 11 and opened its membership to all current and former international and national tennis players aiming primarily to function as a forum and platform to represent the professional interests of its members and, thereby, improve the standard of tennis in India.

The ITPA was built on the premise that the existing structure of tennis administration does not represent or adequately address contemporary issues faced by players in the country.

The founding members of the ITPA, including interim president, are Jaideep Mukerjea, Mahesh Bhupathi, Karti Chidambaram, Enrico Piperno, Manisha Malhotra, Prahalad Srinath, Somdev Devvarman, Rohan Bopanna, Aditya Sachdeva and Mustafa Ghouse.
