The first steps in tennis in Turkey begin in tournaments for 8-9-10 years old organized by the Tennis Federation.
After that, tournaments for age groups take place, as well as Tennis Europe tournaments, and as they mature, they start playing ITF, and then professional tournaments are held. It is at this age that it is time for parents to decide whether to go to school or continue their sports career as a professional. Many families are faced with this issue and problem, and usually decided not to pursue a sporting career, but to engage in a school program.
Thus, as a result of complex workouts in a very long process, tennis remains as a support for education, rather than a professional career. Of course, this is not bad, the athlete receives awards for his efforts as a scholarship, but the majority chooses this path, because the number of players who play and seek to play professional tennis in our country is almost negligible.
To increase the number of players who will represent our country in the international arena, it is necessary to change the situation, and it is very important to find talented players from the Basis of our clubs, inform them and their parents and prepare them for the future.
