TTT started its journey on 1 January 1982and soon became a hub for young tennis players who could hone their skills by paying an affordable price. In order to focus only on youngsters, the age cap at the institution was 16 years. Prominent names like Prajnesh Gunneswaran, Ramkumar Ramanathan, among others honed their tennis skills at the institution and were part of state ranking tournaments hosted there.
