“I have started my work in this club one year ago. Before that, I had been working as a coach at the highest level and before that, I was a professional player. This was a new challenge for me. One of my main duties was and is to create more professional team here,” said Grolmus. “We've got all the prerequisites to attract the best players in Slovakia and, of course, also from abroad, and gradually bring them up,” he added.
The cooperation with the club  was started by Kamil Capkovic, former Davis Cup player of Slovakia, just one month ago, too. „I can say that I am still looking around here. I am new here so I have a new view on things. I can change routine according to what I have seen in Europe and in the world – what are the new trends. The conditions are fantastic here, there will be a new tennis hall with additional infrastructure. It’s going to be unprecedented in Slovakia,” said Capkovic.

The cooperation with LOVE 4 TENNIS Academy
Erik Csarnakovics, head coach of the LOVE 4 TENNIS Academy in Bratislava, revealed more about new relationship between the two tennis clubs. “There are twenty clay courts, two hard courts and nine courts in the hall. This is a competition for any top club in Europe. The cooperation between TC EMPIRE TRNAVA and LOVE 4 TENNIS has been created because we are more aware that we share the same goals. The main goal is that we want to coach the players who are going to be competitive in the world and in Europe. There is an exchange between the clubs regarding players and there is the cooperation with players who have the base in Trnava and need to train in Bratislava and vice versa.”

The important thing is to be stronger. “We are looking for new partners in Slovakia and Czech Republic, perhaps also in neighboring countries. We have understood that, on the basis of this cooperation, we are stronger together and we are not trying to compete with anyone, because each player from our clubs actually competes with the world,” said in the end Csarnakovics.
