Local based tennis coaching duo of Majuto Majaliwa and Salum Mvita are lined up to attend an International Tennis Federation’s (ITF) sanctioned course set for Spanish city of Valencia on October 30 through November.
The Dar es Salaam Gymkhana coaches will join the fray with the rest of the coaches from other parts of the world in the week-long course.
The Tanzania Tennis Association’s secretary general Inger Njau said the course is tailor made to add more technical knowledge of the coaches for the country’s tennis development.
The coaches are expected to arrive in Spain in two separate flights with Majuto having boarded his flight yesterday while Mvita flies tomorrow.
Mvita said he is optimistic that the training might be beneficial for him in an effort to improve his teaching methods.
Njau said she is happy for the local coaches to secure such a rare opportunity and she hoped they would make use of the course to upgrade their coaching qualities.
Having attended coaching courses in other parts of Africa such as South Africa, Kenya, Uganda and elsewhere, this is the first course to be attended by Tanzanian coaches outside the continent.
Meanwhile, Mvita is still troubled to secure entry visa into Spain and remained pessimistic to travel in time for the course.
Majaliwa had secured his visa since last week and proceeded to Valencia in readiness for the course.
