My name is India Rojano, I'm 19 years old and a national tennis player from Padstow, Cornwall. In 2014 I finished Top 40 Nationally for my age.
I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old getting into it through the Cliff Richard Trail in Primary school, I haven't stopped playing since. Tennis is been the biggest part of my life and it is what I live for, it is what I have dedicated and made many sacrifices for my entire life. My main goal as a tennis player is to compete at a high level internationally and to gain a WTA world ranking, with my first international $25,000 pro series tournamet taking place in Barnstaple I hope do achieve this goal or to improve my level so I can do this for the future.
My project is to Travel to the La Manga Club based in spain and train at an International training camp. With your funds I will be able to afford:-
- Travel flights
- Tennis Training
- S&C Training
The La Manga Club is very well known around the world for its amazing facilities and for the amount of pfessional athletes in all sports that travel there to train. It plays host to prestigous events such as the Davis Cup matches, The Fed Cup and ATP tournaments. It is the official partner of European Tennis Foundation and it is LTA overseas training base for athletes such as Elena Baltacha who was number 1 for great Britain and many more professional and well known tennis players.
This is because of the world class facilities and the amazing training and coaching it has to offer. It will be alot to budget for but I really hope I can count on your support to allow me to take this amazing experience. The reason for runnig this project is so important to me as it gives me the opportunity to get the best training possible to help me prepare and improve for future events such national and international competitions.
Why it's important to me
Most tennis players that compete at an International level always travel around the globe to get the best coaching and training to help them succeed, including places such the IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida, Sanchez-Casal Tennis Academy in Barcelona and the La Manga Club in Spain nd many other international high performance academys. Having this opportunity and training will give me the best training possible to achieve my goals or gaining a WTA world ranking.
Anything that is donated will be huge help and I will appriciate all the support you can give me. With this experience I will put all of my motivation and dedication to gain the best experience I can and to keep improving.
