Today, almost two years since the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy (TMGA) formed as a visionary joint venture between Sachin Tendulkar and Middlesex Cricket, the partnership’s first ever global academy launches at the incredible DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.
On what is a special day for TMGA, who to date have run a series of hugely successful training camps in London, Mumbai and Pune, the opening of the partnership’s first Academy is a significant milestone in TMGA achieving both Tendulkar’s and Middlesex’s vision for the future – to establish a global network of TMGA Academies.
TMGA was established with a passion to provide world-leading, elite coaching opportunities to young cricket lovers across the globe, with a vision to not only improve their on-field abilities, but also to give them the skills they need to improve their lives and make them better human beings.
Today’s launch of TMGA’s first Academy at the DY Patil Sports Academy provides a unique opportunity to over 200 young cricket lovers from within and around the Navi Mumbai district, who will attend the Academy four times a week across the year, with over 150 focussed sessions built in for each participant, delivered by an elite coaching team, influenced by Sachin Tendulkar himself and led by DY Patil’s TMGA Head Coach and former India Test star Vinod Kambli.
With the TMGA Academy programme covering a wide range of topics, including technical, tactical, physical, psychological, academic and social life skills, TMGA’s participants will benefit from a unique, in-depth and unrivalled programme, which combines numerous disciplines across both the sporting and lifestyle fields – embracing TMGA’s vision of producing better cricketers and better global citizens.
With the launch of the DY Patil Sporting Academy proving such a huge success, with demand for places significantly outstripping availability, TMGA’s next challenge is where and when to launch its next global academy.
Today’s official launch will see the world’s press invited to the Academy to cast a spotlight on TMGA’s latest venture, with the Little Master Sachin Tendulkar himself being joined by Middlesex Cricket legend Mike Gatting to celebrate the Academy’s launch.
