BENGALURU: Students in government schools in Karnataka would soon be among the 260 across the country to get free tennis coaching.
The Rohan Bopanna Tennis Academy started by well-known tennis player, Rohan Boppana and EduSports, a sports startup, entered into an agreement on Saturday whereby the former will provide coaching to trainers of EduSports. They will inturn coach students in the 260 schools.
Talking about plans to implement the project in the state, Jyoti Majumdar, Co-founder Edusports, told CE, “We have been approaching the state educational department to extend our support to discover new talents. It will, however, take some time to implement the plan.” They have not, however, received a green signal from the government as yet.
