After bagging Chandigarh franchise Punjab Marshalls in the Champions Tennis League (CTL), Punjab-based couple and team owners, Gurpreet Singh 'Kiki' and Kudrat Tamber is planning to promote tennis at school level in Punjab initially and later in the Northern region.
The Project called Child to Champion League will target youngsters having inclination towards lawn tennis and will provide them coaching and platform to show their talent by organising matches at school level.
Speaking to Business Standard, owner Gurpreet Singh said, "Right from childhood, we have passion for sports, but unfortunately during those times there were not much opportunity like these days. So, we are planning to identify and nurture talent in and around the Punjab. We have plans to take this sport at grassroot level. We will provide platform and organise matches for the youngsters to showcase their talents. They will also be provided with coaching and mentoring. We are working on the modalities and hope to roll out the project in January 2015 across Punjab. Initially, we are targeting Punjab and later on planning to replicate the model in Northern region."
Punjab Marshalls is an initiative started by Gurang Estates with Gurpreet as managing director.
