Last week end the 16th International Tennis Symposium was held at Centro Pavesi in Milan (Italy) promoted by Pro Camp MGM Italia, UISP and GPTCA

I spent this week end at Centro Pavesi in Milan participating the 16th International Tennis Symposium… as per tradition the Symposium gathered many interesting speakers and it was again an opportunity to learn something new…

This year the event was promoted by Pro CAMP MGMG Italia in collaboration with Il TENIS ITALIANO Magazine and sponsored by UISP (Unione Italiana Sport per tutti) and GPTCA (Global Professional Tennis Coach Association)…

GPTCA is a quite a new fast growing tennis association of Profesional Coaches – certified by ATP – and chaired by Alberto CASTELLANI… Alberto CASTELLANI was also this year the main facilitator of the event because as last year also this year the Symposium was combined with GPTCA Certification Course…

After the welcome word of the Symposium president Mr. Massimo Rossi over the week end many speakers shared their experience with the group: Alberto CASTELLANI, Dragos Madalin LUSCAN, Alessandra PARRONI, Eduardo Luis SILVA, Fulvio CONSOLI, Patricio REMODEGUI, Manuela BENZI, Stefano TAMORRI, Guglielmo SORCI, Fabrizio CALDARONE, Rainer SHUETTLER, Gorio MANDOZZI, Renato PALMA, Tiziano GAMBA

The main theme was “The Personal Coaching from competition of our tennis schools to high level: the steps that tennis school have to observe”… overall the mental part had a big impact on this year event…

The first topic presented was named “Creativity and fantasy as basis elements of motivation: difference between creative and non-creative trainings”… and was presented by Alberto CASTELLANI

As per tradition, Alberto was extraordinary to present the topic… no words were required to be creative ;)… Alberto used the music support and it is something we do for years at “La Bottega” di Smrikve… and his lessons remind me our tennis talents who join as at Smrikve for specific fine tuning weeks… it was a nice lesson…

The following topic was presented by Dragos Madalin LUSCAN… I had pleasure to meet him last year in relation with TRX opportunities… and also this time the topic shared was very interesting…

The title of the topic was “Healthy and myofascial release”… and the most interesting part was that most of the exercises you can simple do with a tennis ball…

After Dragos it was the first lesson related with Mental Training and was held by Alessandra PARRONI… the title was “Mindfulness, flow state and excellent performance: which correlation?”… Alessandra is part of Alberto Castellani’s staff and her lesson was a valuable introduction to all the other speakers who dedicated time to similar subject during symposium…

THe following topic was presented by Eduardo Luis SILVA… on PTR Annual forum at Vavassori Academy in September I had the opportunity to learn about his pilot project… and this time I learned a bit more… the title of the lesson was: “Tennis Program for blinds, Italy.”…

Very emotional presentation… and very interesting… giving importance to what also top tennis players have to give importance… developing sensations… and using sounds and other elements which help to reach the excellence… it was very interesting learning story…

After Eduardo… also Fulvio CONSOLI was invited to share his tennis teaching experience… with people having other difficulties…

Patricio REMODEGUI followed with his presentation and he made some court exercises with the group of students… it was a real pleasure to watch at work the coach who helped Robin KERN in his tennis growth… and Robin played Smrikva Bowl in 2002 … Giulia LAMBIASE is another of his students and Giulia also played Smrikva…

The title of the topic presented by Patricio was: “Professional coaching: fantasy and creativity as basis of trainings for high level players”…

At the end of the first day there was another lesson dedicated to mental part… dedicated to Motor Imagery… the exact title presented was: “Anatomical bases of Motor Imagery and research of praxic Tennis shot: maximum efficacy with minimum effort.”…

There were four speakers: Guiglielmo SORCI… and he started with presenting the lesson…

… continued by… Manuela BENZI and Stefano TAMORRI

it was very interesting to see what science has to say about it… and at the end Alberto CASTELLANI made practice part on the court…

The second day started with Fabrizio CALDARONE…. title of his lesson was: “Life on tour-views on Tennis industry & player management”…

I had pleasure to listen Fabrizio in the past… and it was another interesting presentation…

Last year Toni NADAL shared his coaching experience… and this year it was Rainer SHUETTLER who shared his playing and coaching experience…. Rainer was #4 ATP player in the World… and currently is dedicating his time to coaching… and the presented case was dedicated to his student Bernakis…

Rainer did not only shared his experience… but he also played tennis… and performed some exercises run by Alberto Castellani… the title of his lessons were: “My professional coaching” and “Training and my job with R. Berankis, Junior World Champion and rising tennis star.”…

Last year uncle Tony NADAL… used few words to describe Rafa… and he used two words humble and simple… and this year Alberto Castellani used similar words to describe Rainer: humble and hard working

It was very nice life and growing story Rainer shared about his relation with his coach…

After Rainer… a big surprise was Gorio MANDOZZI

Gorio showed great knowledge of anathomy and body in general… title of his lesson was: “Bio-mechanics evolution to excel in sport performance”…

but his knowledge is broad and touch various fields… Osteopathic Tecniques, Physiotherapy, Posturology, Kinesiology, Matabolic Food… and he simply showed the excellence that can be reached by a Physiotherapeut if he loves and dedicate with passion to this subject…

The last two lessons were dedicated to Mental part again…

The first one was held by Renato PALMA with title… “The easy happiness”…

The second one, and the last one of this year symposiium, was held by Tiziano GAMBA with title… “Interventions on emotional interferences which interpose with an excellent performance”…

It was another Symposium “good year”… :)

Alberto CASTELLANI, a part of being a coach, is a great fun of culture, art and history thus his presentation are usually coloured with deep notes related with culture that I always enjoy…

… and he is, among other, the President of the ATP Global Professional Tennis Coach Association… and GPTCA can count on huge network of coaches around the World therfore the subjects elected to be shared are always of interest…

Charlotte Owensby, 17th Smrikva Bowl 2012 quarterfinalist, won 17th annual "Little Mo" Nationals 2014 played in Austin - Texas

Charlotte Owensby confirmed with her fifth straight “Little Mo” Nationals title to be one of the most talented US players in her age group… and probably one of the top World players in her age group…

I just learned from Carol Weyman, “Little Mo” Tournament Director, that they just completed the 17th annual “Little Mo” Nationals in Austin, Texas.

Charlotte Owensby won a record 5th straight Nationals title. She won the 8’s as a 7 year old and then won 8’s the next year, 9’s, 10’s and now 11’s. Amazing feat! I learned Charlotte was actually never challenged until her final match against her biggest rival Bridget Stammel. They played each other for the last three finals… and this time they split sets but in end Charlotte did great in momentum management of the match.
