With this e-mail the selection process of the talents for the 18th annual Smrikva Bowl 2013 starts. 18th Smrikva Bowl 2013 will be held in Pula-Istria, Croatia, from 24th till 29th of June 2013. Smrikva Bowl, as some of you may know, is the tournament which boasts the top 10 years old players world-wide… not an under 10, but a “s”-uper 10…;)
There is a detailed presentation about 18th Smrikva Bowl 2013 with the application form and other relevant information related with this year edition that is posted on the main page of the Smrikva Bowl website
17th Smrikva Bowl 2012 gathered top players from 33 countries and since the tournament foundation in 1996 over 1250 top players from 57 countries and all the continents have played the event… it was the first time this year that over 40% of participants accepted were ranked #1 in their countries… historically Smrikva gathered around 30% of participants being formally ranked #1.
In 2009 the cultural tourism guide “Istria from Smrikve” was published and this is my gift to the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors and Smrikve friends with wish that a part of helping us in scouting talents around the World our little Ambassadors will also help us in spreading the word about Istria as cultural tourism destination worth visiting.
The same year, as part of the subscription fee, the Smrikva Bowl participants started to bring a book about the culture of the place they are coming from thus we started to create the Smrikva Bowl Library… this year we physically created the library that also become a classroom for the members of our tennis school “La Bottega” di Smrikve… our tennis school… the donated book till today form a library of over 380 books from 46 countries…
Smrikva Bowl mission is to develop and spread Cosmopolitan values. Children, sport, culture and music are part of the Cosmopolitan World. Last year the Cosmopolite website has been created and it is another gift to the friends of Smrikve and our Ambassadors. Cosmopolite is a website dedicated to a book describing the importance of civilisation for the talents development.
Today is 21st of September… and few years ago this date was selected to be dedicated to the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors… thus became the Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors Day… it is a good day to start the research of the talents for the 2013 edition…
