Beach tennis in Latvia is not the style of life, that we often hear in interviews with various beach athletes. Style of life means to build your life around some activities, becoming part of a special world and identifying ourselves with it. Here you won’t find such a thing. Although in my definition of "beach tennis in Latvia" - "style" won’t miss: beach tennis is stylish. In other words, a stylish hobby. Why?
Imagine how "stylish" is: "I moved to Jurmala for the summer season and play beach tennis in my free time", or "went after work to the beach, sit at the bar, play beach tennis". You can feel how the day turns in different colors, if you spend your holiday on the beach!! And people fall in love with this idea. Jurmala courts be like a meeting point. People come here to spend time, relax, celebrate and make cocktail parties.
Let’s remember that beach tennis is a sport, at least in terms of its energy consumption. And Latvia makes something unreal: this sport develops the RUSSIAN woman, at the national level, with good quality and efficiency. For this summer, being close to organization of bt events, I was looking at the Marina Trefilova, and on what is happening around, listening to her plans, discussed ideas. So, I used to think that is hard to turn on such a huge machine, but then everything will go on by itself. However, it is not like this. Without clear way, which is only in the mind of the creator of the idea, the mechanism begins to break up into different parts, which are rolling in completely different directions.
And it is a true art to finish at least one of your ideas. I really hope that it will happen, because the done list is worth it:
· Regular national tournaments in summer and winter every two weeks;
· The ITF tournaments every month (or more often);
· Clinics from professional players;
· Regular training of the Junior team;
· Free program with funding from the Riga city Council for children's activities in beach tennis;
· Beach parties, team buildings and other events.
And much more in the future… I'll tell you a secret - Latvia is going to surprise everyone.
