5th SBTTFW 2019 - Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Week 13/4/-20/4/2019 (1st week)

A very unique week in Smrikve for the talents and families was just completed…

The program was run by coach Luca Appino, Tennis Talents founder, and by coach Mio, Smrikva Bowl founder. Assistant coaches during the week were Massimo Stupar and visiting coach Silard Kardhordo. The program had focus on two elements:

Tennis Talents Method

1. 5 Senses
2. Muscular release and acceleration
3. Ideal impact zone
4. Timing, rhythm and footwork
5. Tactics: 5 options

and Momentum (the invisible force in tennis)…

The Alumni of this first week of this year edition were:

• Karlo Brkić
• Fabian Đitko
• Alessia Beatrice Chiriac
• Manuella Persson
• Stefan Sladaković
• Tara Sladaković

…with moments to share some key concepts but the most important was to feel them later by each Alumni… this is the base of the whole Method… sensations and ability to feel…

… always give the Alumni some basics…

… let them start with having fun…

… and than feel the element on the court…

… and play…

play…

explain…

we got it ;)… Karlo and Fabian…

warm up and activate before every session… morning or afternoon need to be done…

play…

after the sessions there is always a streching leader… to strech at the end and make proper activation is always very important…

… Stefi :)…

learn something new…

and strech again…

big or small does not matter… new friendship are made… as Yoda like to say… “do you judge me by my size?… and you should not” :)… Manu and Alessia…

play… … put in practice the subject of the day… and play following the tactics of the day…

learn…

… and every day one by one spent time with Luca on element of the day that they wished to improve…

individual interview with Alumni and families is always part of the week…

and graduation is time to celebrate the whole class :)

… we also celebrated Taki’s 3000 hours dedicated to her tennis development…

On Ambassador's Day, 21st of September 2018, the selection for the 24th Smrikva Bowl 2019 generation started... and as of today we have crossed by far the maximum of the talented players we can confirm and the 2019 candidacy process is going to close...

Since 2010 the selection process for the Smrikva Bowl candidates starts on 21st of September… Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day…

I am pleased to share just few words written back in time why that date… that may be of interest for the new Smrikva generation… :)

Smrikve, September 2010

The International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day, occurs annually on September 21st and this day has been elected to be also the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors’ Day.

It is dedicated to peace, or specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many people. For the first time this holiday was celebrated in 1981.

The Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day, although celebrated on the same day as the World Peace Day, is dedicated to civilization, intergenerational responsibility and tennis. Without civil society in a modern world there is no guarantee for peace.

In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly declared, in a resolution sponsored by the United Kingdom and Costa Rica, the third Tuesday of September (the opening day of regular sessions of the General Assembly) as the International Day of Peace devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace and civilization values.

In 2001, the day was changed from the third Tuesday to specifically the twenty-first day of September. A new resolution was passed by the General Assembly, sponsored by the United Kingdom (giving credit to Peace One Day) and Costa Rica (the sponsors of the original day) to give the Day of Peace a fixed date and declare it as a global ceasefire day.

In 1991, on September 21st, I left Smrikve for Milan, it was the war time in my country, 5 years before, on the same day, in 1986, I sailed with a boat to Dubrovnik with school friends living a nice life time memory experience.

Having our calendar year 365 days if we live for some time and create our own experience we learn that the same day can remind us something nice and something not nice… it is a circle…

Not nice could be compared to a mistake in tennis… we learn from the mistakes. They help us understand what is not good or what we do not do properly…

To end this comment I am pleased to repeat words of a Nobel Prize for Peace who was guest speaker to one of Ambrosetti’s Young Leader Group meetings. It is a tradition that every guest dedicate few words to the Group and he wrote down the following:

“The future is always in a minority. Yet the history of the future is more important than the history of the past. It is for the old to remember the past. It is for the young to build the world of tomorrow.

Do it! You can build a world without wars. You can build a new humanity.”

Everything around us lives in a delicate equilibrium and with intelligence we should try to understand it and respect it. The knowledge, human curiosity and will to learn are important. They are all parts of the civilization path.

Shimon Peres used in his note the statement: “Do it!” thus reminded me Yoda’s wisdom words when he shares his knowledge with young Jedi: “Try no. Do or do not “ :)

If people believe in the future there is future. If people do not believe in the future there is no future.
