4th SBTTFW 2018 - Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week 14/4/-21/4/2017 (1st week)

A very unique week in Smrikve for the talents and families was just completed… the program was run by coach Luca Appino, Tennis Talents founder, and Mio, Smrikva Bowl founder, with the focus on two elements:

Tennis Talents Method

1. 5 Senses
2. Muscular release and acceleration
3. Ideal impact zone
4. Timing, rhythm and footwork
5. Tactics: 5 options

and Momentum (the invisible force in tennis)…

The Alumni of this first week of this year edition were:

• Tara Sladaković
• Rares Golescu
• Stefan Sladaković
• Trian Lakha
• Žiga Šeško
• Paola Pieragostini
• Uxue Azurza Frade
• Staša Bulatović

…with moments to share some key concepts but the most important was to feel them later by each Alumni… this is the base of the whole Method… sensations and ability to feel…

… always give the Alumni some basics…

… let them start with having fun…

… and than feel the element on the court…

… and play…

after the sessions there is always a streching leader… to strech at the end and make proper activation is always very important…

individual interview with Alumni and families is always part of the week…

On Ambassador's Day, 21st of September 2017, the selection for the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation started... and in some days the 2018 candidacy process will be fully completed...

Since 2010 the selection process for the Smrikva Bowl candidates starts on 21st of September… Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day…

I am pleased to share just few words written back in time why that date… that may be of interest for the new Smrikva generation… :)

Smrikve, September 2010

The International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day, occurs annually on September 21st and this day has been elected to be also the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors’ Day.

It is dedicated to peace, or specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many people. For the first time this holiday was celebrated in 1981.

The Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day, although celebrated on the same day as the World Peace Day, is dedicated to civilization, intergenerational responsibility and tennis. Without civil society in a modern world there is no guarantee for peace.

In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly declared, in a resolution sponsored by the United Kingdom and Costa Rica, the third Tuesday of September (the opening day of regular sessions of the General Assembly) as the International Day of Peace devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace and civilization values.

In 2001, the day was changed from the third Tuesday to specifically the twenty-first day of September. A new resolution was passed by the General Assembly, sponsored by the United Kingdom (giving credit to Peace One Day) and Costa Rica (the sponsors of the original day) to give the Day of Peace a fixed date and declare it as a global ceasefire day.

In 1991, on September 21st, I left Smrikve for Milan, it was the war time in my country, 5 years before, on the same day, in 1986, I sailed with a boat to Dubrovnik with school friends living a nice life time memory experience.

Having our calendar year 365 days if we live for some time and create our own experience we learn that the same day can remind us something nice and something not nice… it is a circle…

Not nice could be compared to a mistake in tennis… we learn from the mistakes. They help us understand what is not good or what we do not do properly…

To end this comment I am pleased to repeat words of a Nobel Prize for Peace who was guest speaker to one of Ambrosetti’s Young Leader Group meetings. It is a tradition that every guest dedicate few words to the Group and he wrote down the following:

“The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

Everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. The knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important. They are all parts of the civilization path.

Shimon Peres used in his note the statement: “Do it!” thus reminded me Yoda’s wisdom words when he shares his knowledge with young Jedi: “Try no. Do or do not “ :)

If people believe in the future there is future. If people do not believe in the future there is no future.

Only 8 days away from the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation candidacy process completion... and the story of the Old Olive Trees...

8 days away from the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation candidacy process completion… I am pleased to share part of the story related to the old Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Olive Trees…

In 2005, for the 10th Smrikva Bowl anniversary, we started a tradition of planting an Olive tree. The tree that we planted for the 10th Smrikva Bowl is over 150 years old and happens to come from Spain.

During the ceremony, every Ambassador put a tiny piece of land close to the root of the Olive tree and say his or her name. Every year a new old Olive tree receive the Ambassadors’ names from many countries and continents. So far Smrikva Bowl olive oil have reached 85 countries and six continents…

The Olive tree is a symbol of peace. The age of the tree is a symbol of intergenerational responsibility. Every person is born without knowing anything about life on this earth and it is the responsibility of every generation to learn to preserve all that each of us is born with and allow future generations to enjoy the beauty of life, the sunsets and the seasons of the earth.

Very often while thinking about old olive trees in Smrikve I like to recall Mufasa teaching Simba the circle of life story… and below is part of a letter written a decade ago thinking about Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors and their Olive Trees…

Smrikve, March 2008

AMBASSADORSOLD OLIVE TREE AND THE CIRCLE OF LIFE

The Lion King cartoon is an artwork and most of the life messages one can find in it are in line with the Smrikva Bowl. They are in line with the message of the Ambassadors’ Olive Tree; they are in line with the values of friendship and love; they are in line with empathy. Love, friendship and empathy are all Cosmopolitan values per excellence, as far as people and humanity are concerned.

The relationship between Mufasa, Sarabi and Simba reminds me of both: parents and family love, but also about the intergenerational responsability.

Timon, Pumbaa and Simba relationship reminds me about love between friends. Pumbaa also make me think abuout empathy, intuition and loyalty. The relationship between Simba and Nola reminds me again about the importance of love. Rafiki, the wise old baboo, with his many centuries old tree reminds me about the importance of knowledge and experience of the older. There are many other particular moments that every person on its own, based on his or her own life experience, discover by watching these artworks.

You might be interested to know that most of the characters’ names in this cartoon have a particular meaning in Swahili language: Simba means “lion”; Nala means “gift”, and love is for me one of the greatest gifts that people can receive and give during their life; Sarabi means “mirage”; Pumbaa means “dull-witted” or “stunned”; and Rafiki means “friend” :). These names with their meanings make me think of the American Indians and the way they used to give the names to their people.

Every person is born without knowing anything about life on this earth and it is the responsibility of every generation to understand and to learn, to preserve all that each of us is born with. When Mufasa was explaining to Simba that is not easy to be the King… a good King should know that everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. The intergenerational responsibility alone will allow future generations to enjoy the beauty of life, the sunsets and the seasons of the earth. Enjoy the circle of life.

I am pleased to repeat words of a Nobal Prize for Peace who was guest speaker to one of Ambrosetti’s Young Leader Group meetings. It is a tradition that every guest dedicate few words to the Group and he wrote down the following

“The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

Everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. It is true that every generation face new challenges but there are many examples in the past how the old generations managed and solved particular problems and this is way knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important.

Only 13 days away from the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation candidacy process completion...

I am pleased to share the story of the Smrikva Bowl theater that for over two decades has been gathering the talents from all over the World…

We are less than two weeks away from closing the candidacy process for the 23rd annual and another year full of talents is envisaged again… and I am pleased to share the following story with the new generation candidates…

Smrikve, January 2010

INSPIRINGSMRIKVA

… an inspiring tennis festival… When I think of Smrikva Bowl I try to imagine it as a theater where every year we work hard to set a stage where the world’s talents can gather… Every year we gather all these different actors, great talents, very special kids, arriving from different cultures, having different dreams,…

We set the stage and later on they are in charge with their will, dreams and hard work… they are the ones who write the most different stories…

Smrikva Bowl is still very young tournament but I would like to think that some of these kids will write nice and inspiring stories in most different professional fields.

I also know that according to the statistics only few of the kids participating Smrikva Bowl will make it to become top professional tennis players, but I like to think that they will make it in other professional fields they choose in their lives.

I was recently reading Andre Agassi’s book and through the whole book he was repeating to friends and people meeting during his life that he doesn’t like tennis thus it seems to me that he never had the option to choose, but in end he ended up being the Champion and according to Luke Jensen a person with big heart and very good friend.

I will never know how many kids playing Smrikva Bowl are playing it because their parents would like them to become professional tennis players and how much of them play it because they enjoy the game.

What I do know is that any kind of sport can help kids in their growth and I also know that people that do excel in any field require total dedication and a lot of sacrifice to reach the excellence.

When I think of Andre’s words of not loving what he was doing for most of the time of his life I start thinking of other 90% of people around the World that make for living doing jobs they do not like, but “La vita e’ bella” Roberto Benigni would say and tennis helped Andre to grow up.

There is one part in the book that I liked a lot… it is about inspiration, faith and what does it mean to be a good coach… to have the right word in the right moment… this part is related with Gil… and is about people that do believe in other people and help them to write their life stories and to write their own one…

Here are Gil’s words reported by Andre in his book when he accepted to coach him:

“I’m not one of those people who expresses or articulates feelings very well, but from now on, just know this: It’s on, man. It is on.

You know what I’m saying? We’are in a fight, and you can count on me until the last man is standing. Somewhere up there is a star with your name on it. I might not be able to help you find it, but I’ve got pretty strong shoulders, and you can stand on my shoulders while you’re looking for that star. You hear? For as long as you want. Stand on my shoulders and reach, man. Reach.”

In every life there are people that influence what we do and how we do it.

The Smrikva Bowl festival would like to inspire its players and Ambassadors to beleive in their dreams and work hard to reach them.

Sport and music are in general good educators and the vision of sport prefered in Smrikve is the one Nelson Mandela once said:

“Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire and the power to unite people in a way little else can – it is an instrument of peace.”

Smrikva Bowl Mission like a Dream...

Not many years from now there will be much more Smrikva Bowl players among professional players…

There will be much more Smrikva Bowl players that thanks to their racket skills will got the scholarship to play in the prestige Universities…

There will be much more who will graduate all around the World…

Smrikva Bowl dream is that may they all stand together for something “more than tennis”…

“If you want 1 year of prosperity, grow grain.
If you want 10 years of prosperity, grow trees.
If you want 100 years of prosperity, grow people.”

Smrikva Bowl mission is to inspire, develop and spread cosmopolitan values. Love, friendship and empathy are cosmopolitan values per excellence for people and humanity…

CULTURE, CHILDREN, SPORT and MUSIC are part of the Smrikva Bowl idea of the cosmopolitan world. It is a matter of civilization

A wise wind, product of imagination, once whispered… “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.” (M.Y.)… and fairy tales seems to help that beauty…

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” (A.E.)…

Usually in tennis game it does not matter what goes wrong but your reaction to it…

Fear and anger are for the brain the same as cramps for the muscles… and as Yoda noted “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”… like in tennis, so similar seems to be life…


There are different ways to look at sport. There are different ways to look at music, culture, love and also to children.

The vision of sport preferred in Smrikve can be described and extended to: culture, music and children using the following Nelson Mandela – Madiba’s words:

“Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire and the power to unite people in a way little else can – it is an instrument of peace.”

Smrikva Bowl Library story... "books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind..." ;)

23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation will be selected in less than 40 days… and today I will be pleased to recall a story that is linked to the books and the title of today… linked to the books but also to our players who bring them to their Smrikva Bowl… :)

…it is the story of heritage… but as written in the title… it is again a story related to the spring via pollen … but this time is a kind of mind pollen… ;)…

James Russell Lowell compared books to the bees and I like it… “books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind…”


In 2009 we started the building of the Smrikva Bowl library. Each Smrikva Bowl player is requested to bring with him a cultural book that will remember his stay in Smrikve and will represent his culture of origin that one day guests of Smrikve will be able to consult, enjoy and discover.

Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors are today spread in 85 countries and all the continents. Historically their task was to search the talented kids in their countries of origin and invite them to play the Smrikva Bowl but from this year they are also our Cultural Ambassadors.

The old olive tree Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors plant every year is a symbol of friendship and intergenerational responsibility and Smrikva Bowl’s idea of children, sport, music and culture that are able to pass all frontiers are incorporated in the creation of this Smrikva Bowl Library.

I used to write in my first book on European Union and Cosmopolitan Democracy that we are those who represent the current civilization.

This is an important concept. Today people live an average of about 80 years. What we call civilization is mostly made up of the human knowledge we have accumulated until today, which our institutions pass onto future generations.

The books represent the greatest human memory that can help us understand what we see combined with cummulated personal experience of our daily lives. But given the fragility of the circle of life it is very easy for people to ignore these facts and lose sight of our human knowledge. It takes just a few generations to lose this great heritage.

We have gotten used to rapid technological progress, but social and civil progress is slower and more complex. Humans learn throughout their whole lifetime, from books and schools, but we also mostly learn from our personal experiences.

Smrikva Bowl mission is to develop and spread cosmopolitan values. Love, friendship and empathy are cosmopolitan values per excellence for people and humanity…

Thanks in advance to all the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 generation players who will help this year with their visit to Smrikve to build another piece of the Smrikva Bowl World library :)

Smrikve c Code & "The Last Jedi"

“The Last Jedi” is in the cinemas these days and 34 years ago I had pleasure to see the “Return of the Jedi”…

I enjoyed “The Last Jedi” thanks to Disney and the team of various talents behind this project allowing it to live after George Lucas initial inspiration…

I am pleased to share the Smrike c Code article written back in year 2010… thinking of those students, parents and coaches who attended my Momentum classes at Smrikve… with help of Yoda as teacher and Luke Skywalker as Alumni many children got something that I believe they can apply on and off the court ;)…

Smrikve, October 2010

The Star Wars “Return of the Jedi” is the first film I remember seeing with my dad at the cinema… it was 1983 and I was 10… the cinema was named “Istra”… I was the same age as the Smrikva Bowl players we host every year in Smrikve :)…

In the introduction of this article I would just underline that I like the way Jedi use the lightsabers and I like the way Smrikva Bowl kids use their rackets :)… Smrikve c Code is a story about virtue created by training and wish to learn…

My dad was pilot and for me watching The Star Wars with him at the cinema was a particular experience … I had many questions and he, as usual, with smile and pleasure answered to each of my questions…

Dad used to take me with him on the airport when I was little… and I remember him entering the cockpit of the plane with pilot helmet watching towards me and giving me the sign that he was ready to fly… than he turned on the engine of the plane and watched towards me again with smile in his eyes…

I stayed about 100 meters from the airplane with his colleagues and watched him taking his plane towards runway…

From the place where I stayed only part of the runway was visible because of the wood and he took the plane in the area that was invisible to me to prepare for the takeoff… I was able to hear the force of the engine… and when the sound of the force started to increase I knew that my dad will be visible soon… his colleagues were telling me “be ready soon your dad will come”… and when he started to be visible on the back of the plane there was the fire… almost half length of the airplane had the fire extension formed by his engine and I just noticed his helmet in the cockpit and followed by my kids eyes his airplane reaching the sky…

The Jedi are characters in the Star Wars universe bound to a code of morality and justice and are trained in the use of the light side of the force. They learn to use the Force, and weapons, known as lightsabers, which emits a controlled energy flow in the shape of a sword, to serve and protect their Republic and the galaxy from conflicts or government instability…

Since long time ago I started to note the ability of Smrikva Bowl kids using the racket and thinking at the same time on Jedi’s ability to use the lightsaber :)…

Some of my students use Wilson’s ying & young damper… known as Tao sign… they like the symbol but are still too young to have an idea about it ;)… I will try to use this symbol to help me explain how little the difference could be in forming a balance in anything we do… every action has a reaction in our World… in the first classes of physics we learn Newton’s third law…

Tao is an abstract concept found in Taoism, Confucianism, and more generally in ancient Chinese philosophy and East Asian cultures.

While the word itself translates as “way”, “path”, or “route”… it is often used philosophically to signify the fundamental nature of the World we are used to living on Earth… it is often referred to as “the nameless”, because neither it nor its principles can ever be adequately expressed in words.

While the Tao cannot be expressed, Taoism holds that it can be known, and its principles can be followed. Much of Taoist writing focuses on the value of following the Tao – called Te (virtue) – and of the ultimate uselessness of trying to understand or control Tao outright. This is often expressed through yin and yang arguments, where every action creates a counter-action as a natural, unavoidable movement within manifestations of the Tao.

I used the above short explanation to introduce the Codes used in the Star Wars universe…

As in the Tao symbol there were knights trained to use the dark side of the force and the light side… this is the way how mankind functioned since the human written memory goes back…

For new ideas people have to go beyond… out of the known patterns by using their imagination… the kids are many times Master in this…

“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.”… :)

DARK SIDE (The Sith Code)

• Peace is a lie. There is only passion.
• Through passion, I gain strength.
• Through strength, I gain power.
• Through power, I gain victory.
• Through victory, my chains are broken.
• The Force shall free me.

LIGHT SIDE (The Jedi Code)

• There is no emotion, there is peace.
• There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
• There is no passion, there is serenity.
• There is no death, there is the Force.

The Jedi Code was rewritten by Grand Master Luke Skywalker upon reestablishing the Jedi Order:

• Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
• Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
• Jedi respect all life, in any form.
• Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
• Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

Smrikve c code is the code…

…and… just one more thing…

… “La guerra no le hace a uno grandioso.”… ;)

I am pleased to close this article with Dire Straits and their Brothers in Arms song… starting with the sound of the thunder… The concert was made in 1988 to honor Nelson Mandela…

*BROTHERS IN ARMS *

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you’ll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you’ll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I’ve whittnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun’s gone to hell
And the moon’s riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it’s written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We’re fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2018

Dear Smrikve friends,

It is greetings time… time to stay with loved ones… time to recall moments of the year… and time to think about new dreams to reach that may bring joy and energy to each of us…

… I always believed that Smrikva Bowl kids and families will write stories able to inspire generations to come… and today can be foreseen more than one will do it…

22nd Smrikva Bowl edition is behind us… and 1820 Smrikva Bowl seeds are spread in 85 countries…

So far they conquered a total of 29 junior GRAND SLAM titles… 21 professional ATP/WTA titles… 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… and in the most respected under 12, 14, 18 tournaments there is always someone who reach the end of the Draw…

To have a dream is nice… but to have people who dream with you is even more nice…

Special thanks goes to all who keep visiting Smrikve after their Smrikva Bowl and choose to stay at our „home away from home“… bringing news… inviting friends to visit us…

We do our best to keep improving in different directions… your visit do inspire us… and inspiration was always the invisible key for another good year…

Long time ago we started to prepare 4th Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks (SBTTFW) 2018… scheduled for 13/4/-21/4/ and 22/4 – 29/4/… a special development week guided by Luca Appino, credited for signing contracts with Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (all of them scouted when they were far away from becoming #1)…

Preparations for the 23rd Smrikva Bowl 2018 edition started the day after the 22nd annual finals and another good year of talents is envisaged…

May 2018 will be the year when a Smrikva Bowl seed collect the first senior Grand Slam title of many to come… this will be a great moment to smirk ;)…

… and one last thing… this year Smrikva Bowl olive trees made good fruits again… collecting olives is one of the most relaxing family moments… and is an honor to take care of the trees knowing that the olive trees planted since 2005 by our Ambassadors are becoming every day more and more special…

Best wishes to you and your families,

Mio

Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Prosinac je vrijeme čestitanja… vrijeme želja… vrijeme za prisjetiti se godine koja prolazi… a i trenutak za osmisliti nove puteve kojima krenuti koji mogu donijeti radosti i energije svakome od nas…

… oduvjek sam vjerovao da djeca Smrikve imaju prilike zapisati priče koje će primjerom nadahnuti generacije koje dolaze… i sve je lakše razaznati da će više njih ipisati svoje ime zlatnim slovima…

22. Smrikva Bowl je iza nas… i sjeme Smrikve broji 1820 talenata raširenih u 85 zemalja…

Već danas posjeduju impresivan životopis… 29 juniorske GRAND SLAM titule… 21 profesionalna ATP/WTA titula… 2 igrača je dostiglo TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking… i zadnjih godina svaki najprestižniji turnir u svijetu do 12, 14 ili 18 godina uvijek ima ponekog Smrikvara u završnici ždrijeba…

Sanjati je lijepo… ali imati ljude koji sanjaju uz tebe je još ljepše…

Posebno hvala svima koji nas posjećuju… donose vijesti… dovode prijatelje…

Trudimo se biti vrijedni i napredovati kao što to čine naši mališani… svaki posjet inspiriše… a inspiracija je uvijek bila nevidljivi ključ dobre godine…

Dugo se radi na pripremi Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2018 koji će se održati od 13/4/-21/4/ i 22/4/-29/4/… jedno razvojno iskustvo uz prijatelja Luku Appina, kojem se pripisuje otrivanje igrača poput Rafaela Nadala, Andy Roddicka, Kim Clijsters, Dinare Safina, Caroline Wozniacki dok su bili daleko od broja 1 na svijetu…

Isto tako 23. Smrikva Bowl-u 2018. je u punom jeku pripremanja… i očekuje se još jedna dobra godina…

Možda 2018.ta bi mogla biti godina prvog seniorskog Grand Slam od mnogih koji će već doći… bio bi to divan trenutak za smješak ;)…

… i još nešto za kraj… da ne zaboravim :)… ove godine su masline dobro rodile… berba je uvijek poseban opuštajući trenutak u obitelji… trenutak mira i inspiracije… i čast je brinuti se o maslinama Ambasadora Smrikv koje svakoga dana postaju sve posebnije…

Sve najljepše i vama i obitelji!

Mio

p.s. hvala za svaki Like i Share Facebook zajednice Smrikvi!

Cari amici di Smrikve,

E’ il tempo degli auguri… il tempo per stare insieme con i propri cari… il momento per ricordarsi dell’anno… ed il momento per pensare ai nuove obiettivi che possano portarci gioia ed energia…

… ho sempre creduto che i ragazzi dello Smrikva Bowl scriveranno storie che ispireranno con l’esempio… ed e’ sempre piu’ facile scorgere che piu’ di uno lo farra’…

22.esima edizione e’ dietro di noi… e 1820 semi dello Smrikva sono sparsi in 85 paesi…

Questi ragazzi hanno collezionato un totale di 29 titoli juniores negli GRANDE SLAM… 21 titoli professionali ATP/WTA… 2 sono entrati in TOP 10 ATP/WTA… ed in tornei prestigiosi under 12,14,18 nel Mondo c’e sempre qualcuno che arriva alla fine del tabellone…

Avere un sogno e’ bello… ma avere la gente che sogna insieme a te e’ ancora piu’ bello…

Grazie speciale a tutti che ci visitano… portano notizie… e continuano a portare nuovi amici…

Cerchiamo di migliorare sempre noi stessi e le vostre visite portano inspirazione… e l’inspirazione e’ sempre stata l’invisibile chiave per un altro buon anno…

Si lavora da tempo per il 4. Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week (SBTTFW) 2018 che si terra’ tra il 13/4/-21/4/ e 22/4/-29/4/… sarra’ una settimana di studio-crescita guidata dall’amico Luca Appino, al quale va il credito d’aver firmato giocatori come Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina, Carolina Wozniacki (scoperti quando erano molto lontani dal diventare #1 nel mondo)

23.esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl 2017 e’ in fase di preparazione dal giorno dopo la finale della 22.esima edizione… e si attende un’altra annata di talenti…

Spero 2018 porti anche il primo Grand Slam tra molti che veranno tra gli seniores… sarebbe un speciale momento per sorridere ;)…

…e l’ultima cosa… quest’anno gli ulivi hanno fruttato bene… la raccolta e’ sempre un momento magico in famiglia e di relax… e’ un onore prendere cura di ulivi speciali piantati dai nostri Ambasciatori che ogni anno diventano sempre piu’ speciali…

Un caro augurio a voi e le vostre famiglie,

Mio
