The Regional Course for Coaches was the first of its kind in Tennis in the region, facilitated by ITF tutor Karl Davis. The workshop’s aim was to ensure that tennis coaches both in Antigua and Barbuda and the region were equipped with the information needed for travelling with top junior athletes and also finding ways to facilitate their long term development. The course was seven days long and included coaches from 9 different countries. The coaches were encouraged to take what they learned back to their respective countries/clubs to aid in the overall development of their national athletes.
The Antigua and Barbuda Tennis Association thanked the Olympic Solidarity and the National Olympic Committee for their support of this effort, and stated that without the financial support the course would not have been possible. ABTA expressed their gratitude to the Ministry of Sports for waiving the duty on the equipment needed for the workshop.
