La Bottega di Smrikve

… “La Bottega” di Smrikve is envisaged as tennis talents fine tuning workshop dedicated to the “seeds of the Legends of tomorrow”…


Smrikve, 2007 – August 2011 – 2022

Just a bit more than 16 years ago I started to dedicate more and more time to the Smrikve Tennis workshop development… over time named “La Bottega”…

… it is a natural development of a passion started in 1986 when my parents built our first tennis court… and it is a natural development of a story started in 1996 when the Smrikva Bowl tennis talents story began…

…it was 2007 when I returned back home to Smrikve and started to put basis for “La Bottega” di Smrikve… quite unique tennis talents workshop dedicated to the “seeds of the Legends of tomorrow”…

In September 2009 I attended PTR International Certification Workshop… and as the ancient Greek Plato said “the beginning is the most important part of any work”… Confucius, at the same time, on the other part of the Earth noted how “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”… :)

both of them are inspiring quotes and my dedication to this unique and small workshop is driven by the above… many books read, videos watched, dedicated hours and courses followed are behind… and I am pleased to share a thing I believe in and that was added to the name of the workshop…

…it is the story of La Bottega… :)… since December 2014 I am fully dedicated in nurturing only the talent of my niece Tara…


During the Renaissance period La Bottega (the art and craft workshop) was the nursery site for the formation of the artists… and was probably the source of the Renaissance itself…

Inside La Bottega we can imagine pupils, still children, that began to take their first steps into the world of art… growing their talent side by side with the greatest artists that later on made history…

La Bottega was managed by a Master who was setting the work commissioned… which, in end, has been completed by students dividing the work according to the abilities…

The work of art was therefore not the result of a single artist but of an entire workshop although the teacher worked personally doing parts to make the work uniform and close to perfection…

The students entered as pupils the workshop to learn the technique and they perfected till they become the experts on their own… All the greatest artists we learn about in schools have grown up in the workshops described above…

The Renaissance workshop was not limited to being a fine school of design but has served as a cultural center in which the philosophy and scientific knowledge merged with the artistic technique…

The decision to add to Smrikve the term La Bottega was driven by several elements…

• Smrikve was always envisaged as something more than tennis (library, culture, olive oil and wine,…)

• the fact that in Smrikve we have limited resources we decided to focus on the quality and individual approach…

TALENTED PLAYERS THAT WE ACCEPT FOR HOLIDAYS DURING THE YEAR FOR SHORTER PERIODS OF TIME AS GUESTS OF OUR WORKSHOP ARE LINKED TO THE SMRIKVA BOWL NETWORK… over 2220 tennis talents spread in 98 countries and all the continents… the preference of the accepted players always go to the talents we had opportunity to meet during Smrikva Bowl or players recommended by the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors… traditionally they have good understanding of the Smrikve philosophy…

24th edition was played in June 2019… 25th and 26th editions were not held due to corona virus pandemic and 27th edition will be played in June 2022…

As of January 17th, 2022 their track record includes the following:
=> 58 professional ATP/WTA titles (1 Grand Slam) conquered by 21 player
=> 36 GRAND SLAM titles (including junior titles) conquered by 28 players
=> 1 Olympic golden medal (singles) & 1 Olympic silver medal (doubles)
=> 1 NEXT GEN ATP Finals title
=> 54 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking => 33 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking => 8 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA => 2 players reached TOP 5 ATP/WTA ranking

240 + SB players received scholarships to study & play tennis for the US Universities.

Many famous tennis players left footprints on Smrikve tennis courts and we are proud to present the names of the players who reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA during their career so far… and those who among their titles holds Grand Slam titles.

La Bottega di Tennis – SMRIKVE

Thanks to the passion towards the game, that Smrikva Bowl helped to grow over the last 25 years, our workshop is dedicating major attention to the talented tennis players.

La Bottega aims to provide our visiting guests with the best existing knowledge and methods developed for instructing young and developed players in their overall growth.

Usually, the kids that are involved in sports activities or in music learn to efficiently allocate their time. Kids learn to become responsible individuals and this could be very important for any professional activity they may decide to pursue in the future.

In particular, in the tennis game there is a need to solve problems individually and it is a good way to develop good habits and also have fun.

Tennis is a lifetime sport from which all age groups find personal enjoyment, opportunities to mix with others socially, as well as the health benefits of vigorous exercise.

La Bottega is simply designed to fine tune and give some tools to talented children to get better and let them bring home something new every time they stay for their family holidays in Smrikve
