MBTA is a pioneering effort to promote the game of tennis across different levels. By launching our 'School Tennis Program' in various schools across india, MBTA has established itself as a force that adopts a systematic and well-planned approach at every stage in the process of tennis coaching. It is customised to the capabilities and needs of each participant and leads to a comprehensive and highly effective graduation process.

It was in 2006 that Mahesh Bhupathi’s vision became a reality. MBTA was founded by the 12-time Grand Slam winner with the objective of imparting professional, world-class training (both practical and theoretical) and highly specialised coaching to youngsters of all age-groups. Another objective of the MBTA was to increase the accessibility of tennis by ensuring that people across all socio-economic groups have the opportunity to experience the joy of tennis. Mr. Gaurav Natekar, former India No. 1, Arjuna awardee and double Asian Games gold medallist is the CEO and the driving force behind MBTA.

Today, MBTA has established itself as India’s premier tennis academy with over 20 centres spread across the country, imparting international quality coaching to over 8000 children across various levels.

Besides that, we have a team of over 90 professionally trained coaches complemented by a fully integrated backend team that works tirelessly on conceiving, developing and reinventing coaching programs, plans events for the children and puts into place systems to standardise our tennis coaching program.
