That is exactly what Duta International Tennis Academy did in celebration of Hari Sukan Negara on 10 October 2015.
It is called Tennis Jam – The Tennis for ALL at Kompleks Tenis Jalan Duta for adults and kids.
It is the brainchild of Malaysia’s best all time professional tennis player, V. Selvam who founded Duta International Tennis Academy in 1999.
Tennis Jam who was officiated by Mirzan Tun Mahathir is an exciting, fun filled tennis cardio dance workout on court accompanied by high tempo music. Highly successful event that saw 80 adults and 70 kids participated. Event was from 8am to 1pm.
The first one of its kind in Malaysia
• where people playing tennis with upbeat music.
• where anyone could play it even if you have never lifted a racket before.
• the only goal was to keep your feet moving non-stop.
• less about tennis technique, more about sweating it out, burning calories and just have fun.
• music made it fun, got the people moving and motivated.
• group activity made it competitive, high energy
Hari Sukan Negara is not about just exercising only on this special day. But to continue doing sports continuously and consistently.
So Tennis Jam encouraged all participants pledged to workout once a week for half an hour, at the least. This pledge was made by signing on the Tennis Jam banner and photographed.
This will be presented to Menteri Belia dan Sukan, YB Khairy Jamaluddin.
It is a creative way to get more Malaysian playing tennis and to make it fun, Tennis Jam is the answer.
