Mirpurkhas hosts second wheelchair tennis coaching camp

The Mirpurkhas Tennis Association, in collaboration with the Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF), has launched a month-long Wheelchair Tennis Coaching Camp at Citizen Gymkhana. This initiative is part of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Wheelchair Tennis Development Program.

Building on the success of a four-month camp held from September to December 2023, this new camp aims to further develop wheelchair tennis in the region. Key supporters include Gulistan-e-Mazooreen Mirpurkhas and the management of Citizen Gymkhana.

The camp was inaugurated by Muhammad Khalid Rehmani, Vice President of the Pakistan Tennis Federation and a member of the Asian Tennis Federation’s Wheelchair Tennis Committee. During the opening ceremony, Rehmani announced plans for another camp in October 2024. He also invited the two top wheelchair tennis players from Mirpurkhas to participate in the National Wheelchair Tennis Event in Karachi later this year.

Rehmani highlighted the support from the Pakistan Tennis Federation, which has provided essential equipment, including nets, rackets, and four wheelchairs, to facilitate the camp.

Officials from the Sindh Tennis Association, including Sarwar Hussain, Humera Qazi, Perveen Akhter, Farha Riaz, Erum Bukhari, Ishrat Zehra, Raisa Ashfaq, Fahmida Zamir, and Iqbal Ahmed, were present at the inauguration, underscoring the strong community and organizational support for this initiative.
