Chinese Taipei and China Emerge Victorious in ATF 12&U Regional Qualifying Event (East Asia)

Elite 14&U Players Sharpen Skills at ITF/ATF Training Camp in Shymkent, Kazakhstan.

The ITF /ATF 14&U Development Training camp (West & Central Asia) was held in Shymkent, Kazakhstan from 19 -23 June. A total of 16 talented young players from across the region gathered for the Regional Development Camp. This exciting initiative brought together rising stars from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Iran, Iraq, and Oman, all with one goal in mind: to elevate their game to the next level.

The camp buzzed with energy as Ramtin Rafeeoboroujeni (Iran), Beknazarov Makhmudbek (Uzbekistan), Ridvan Loinov (Kyrgyzstan), Hasan Ghriari (Iran), Akhmadi Makhanov (Kazakhstan), Muhiddinov Nasirddin (Tajikistan), Mutaz Issa Al Mazroui (Oman), and Nurdaulet Balkan (Kazakhstan) all trained together in the boys camp.

The ggirls camp featured Hana Shabanpour (Iran), Ilima Guseynova (Turkmenistan), Nailya Baimakhanova (Kazakhstan), Muslimakhon Turdimuradova (Uzbekistan), Anel Bogdanova (Kyrgyzstan), Hudaykulieva Nazli (Turkmenistan), and Kiryushenko Ekaterina (Kazakhstan).

This diverse group not only honed their skills but also fostered valuable camaraderie. Led by ITF representative Amir Borghei, the coaching staff included seasoned professionals such as Sagadat Ayap (KAZ), Mohammed Alhafidh (IRQ), and Shokhinur Ergashev (UZB).

The mornings began with a strategic mix of on-court drills and physical conditioning sessions designed to improve players’ adaptation to clay courts, consistency, depth, and baseline play.

Afternoons were dedicated to refining serve and return techniques, followed by intensive practice sets in both singles and doubles under the watchful eyes of the coaches. Every swing, every sprint, was meticulously observed and adjusted, ensuring each player received personalized coaching to refine their individual strengths and weaknesses.
The camp culminated with the players putting their newly acquired skills to the test at the ongoing ATF Grade A tournament in Shymkent. The camp served as a crucial stepping stone, allowing players to test their newly acquired skills in a competitive setting.

But the benefits extend far beyond the upcoming tournament. This training camp serves as a crucial element in their player pathway. Many of these participants will be competing in the prestigious ITF GSPDP Asian Junior Championship and many more tournaments, and the knowledge and techniques gained here will prove invaluable.

The ITF/ATF 14U Regional Development Training Camp is a testament to the ATF’s commitment to nurturing young talent. By providing these Elite players with world-class coaching and a platform to develop their skills, this initiative lays the groundwork for their future success. The camp also serves as a model for future endeavors, solidifying the ATF’s commitment to providing ongoing support to deserving players across the region.
