The national training camp (Pelatnas) for field tennis will begin soon. Next week, the Indonesian Tennis Association (Pelti) will again hold Pelatnas at Istora Gelora Bung Karno Jakarta. Previously, the Indonesian Team members who used to practice at the Senayan only practiced independently at home.
“Yesterday there was training in housing at PIK. But now PSBB has finished (the transition period). We have already tried and next week we can train in Senayan again,” said Chairperson of the Indonesian Field Tennis Association Association (PP Pelti) Rildo Anwar as reported. from Republika.
Certainty to re-implement the Pelatnas has been decided by Pelti, because the parent organization of the tennis field in the country, has completed the preparation of a health protocol proposal for athletes, when later returning to training.
Tennis explained by Rildo, it is very difficult when you have to practice independently. Because training will be effective when there are sparring opponents. So the decision to immediately implement Pelatnas is considered the best policy. Moreover, Pelti’s Central Board (PP) also has a high target, which is able to pass the tennis player from the doubles to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
“It is impossible for the athletes not to practice because shadow tennis is not possible. He must be on the field. We have also issued (guidelines) how to play tennis safely,” he said.
