Tennis

The WCG boasts of having two world class floodlit Tennis Courts that are open for your use from early morning until late evenings.

Tennis can be played as a sport or as a recreational activity with friends and family. Either way, playing tennis is a good sport to maintain your health, fitness, strength and agility. It has been calculated that an hour-long game of singles tennis, burns around 600 calories for men and 420 calories for women.

The WCG besides providing this facility to its members also conducts open men and veterans Tennis Tournaments. Another milestone by the WCG was the conduct of the parent child Tennis Tournament drawing this combination from all over India. The WCG builds and sustains our sports legacy by nurturing sports talent in the young and old, providing them a platform to participate in these innovative Tournaments thereby further improving their physical fitness and enthusiasm towards the sports.

For scouting and molding talent we have the WCG Touch Tennis Academy run by Alon Moses, a certified International Federation Grade I Coach, who is a much sought after Professional Coach. Alon is a former International and National Professional player who has played the game from the age 7. Today Alon ranks among the Top 30 India in his field.

The Touch Tennis Academy programme is for all age groups. It includes Tennis, Physical Training, Mental Fitness and Nutrition to nurture all round development. Some of the upcoming players from the academy are Sharanya Shetty, Pareen Shivekar, Aaliya Ebrahim, Praneet Kudale.
