New Delhi: The Australasian Academy of Tennis Coaches (AATC) on Thursday announced its expansion into India in partnership with Groundstrokes Tennis Academy.

"AATC has agreed to partner with Groundstrokes Tennis Academy with a joint plan to grow the sport further in Asia Pacific Region by providing international coaching expertise. The goal is to provide a clear pathway for aspiring students who would like to take that next step in their tennis journey at a professional level," said Lynton Joseph, CEO of AATC.

The AATC was formed to provide another option for students who want to attain the same highest standards in coach education at a fraction of the price.

Groundstrokes Tennis Academy was born in 2006 as a weekend tennis coaching programme in tie-up with Woodrose Club here.

Later in 2011, the academy was set up at six new locations across the city. The Academy is founded by Vijay Krishnamurthy, USPTA certified Head Coach.
