The Asian Tennis Federation(ATF) has outlined several developmental projects in the next few years to boost junior tennis in Asia, including the introduction in 2013 of an Under-16 Asian Tour for International Tennis Federation events and the creation of an Under-18 regional team championship.
ATF President Anil Khanna has also announced special grants to the Tennis Federation of Cambodia and Lao Tennis Federation for conducting Asian Under-14 series non-hospitality events this year.
Some of the ATF’s new initiatives include the revival of Asian Championship, strengthening and expansion of the Asian Under-14 series, making ITF Junior events in Asia part of an exclusive Asian Tour and holding an Asian Under-18 Team championship, along with putting the Asian Tennis Centre to greater use for junior programmes.
