The Pakistan Tennis Federation is pleased to convey that PTF, with the assistance of ITF, organized 3 Coaching workshops in Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK).

The Coaching workshops were conducted by PTF’s National Coordinator JTI Program Mr. Hamid Niaz, with the aim of launching the JTI Program in AJK for the first time. This program targets 14&U players, with special emphasis on 10&U children, especially in schools. These workshops were held in Mirpur, Bhimber and Kotli and participants were introduced to the ITF Tennis Play & Stay Campaign. This was the first tennis activity held by the AJK Tennis Association after their induction into the PTF as a non-voting member.

Sixty-four people from all over AJK attended the 3 coaching workshops. These included players, coaches, officials, sports teachers and parents.


President PTF Mr. Salim Saifullah Khan and the PTF Management thanked the ITF for their assistance in organizing the workshops. He appreciated and lauded the efforts of PTF management in conducting the workshops in a highly professional manner. He also felicitated the AJK Tennis Association for their active participation in the workshops, despite the fact that they are new entrants into the fold of PTF.
