In an exclusive association with Gera’s ChildCentricTM Homes, Mahesh Bupathi flagged-off Goa’s first Mahesh Bhupathi Tennis Academy with a Masterclass for the children of Goa’s first ChildCentricTM Homes, Gera’s River of Joy, today. 

The masterclass was followed by coaching for the children of Gera’s River of Joy by the academy’s star coaches offering them an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of their ChildCentricTM Homes even before they move in.

Sharing his thoughts at the event, Mr. Mahesh Bhupathi said,“Sport should be an indispensable part of every child’s upbringlng and it should be encouraged at all levels. It enables the child to channelize energy and prepare him/her physically, mentally and emotionally for different challenges as they grow up.”

“We are happy to associate with Gera Developments and have the Mahesh Bhupathi Tennis Academy as a Gera’s ChildCentricTM Homes exclusive. It is great to see sport being encouraged and made accessible with a novel solution like Gera’s ChildCentricTM Homes. With the academy right within the project premises, I feel confident that there will be more children wanting to explore tennis as an option.”

Taking this thought further Mr. Rohit Gera, Managing Director, Gera Developments, said, “Most parents today grapple with finding professional coaches and classes for varied activities like sports, arts, music, personality development etc., for their children. Child safety concerns, extended travel time and the sheer exhaustion of ferrying children about from one class to another takes its toll on parents and children alike.”

“We believe that our ChildCentricTM Homesare right for today’s home buyers because the project offers customers the convenience of having best-in-class training and other extracurricular activities for their children and themselves, at their doorstep. This is an opportunity to build better relationships amongst parents and children by making it convenient for parents to participate and be involved in their child’s training and development. ”

In addition to the facilities offered by most residential complexes, Gera’s innovative product + service model includes tie-ups with celebrity academies in the fields of arts, sports and personality development as an extension and feature of their residential project.Besides Mahesh Bhupathi for Tennis, Gera’s ChildCentricTM Homes – Gera’s River of Joy has associations with Bhaichung Bhutia for football, Anil Kumble for cricket, Shankar Mahadevan for music, Shiamak Davar for dance and also the Michael Phelps Swimming Academy and the Dale Carnegie Institute for personal development. 

The Masterclass saw enthusiastic participation from the children of Gera’s River of Joy. Most of whom have also enrolled for the coaching to follow. Since the facility at Gera’s River of Joy is currently under construction, the coaching would take place at the tennis courts at Cidade de Goa.

Mr. Rohit Gera, added, “Gera’s ChildCentricTM Homes will provide the residents and their children with an opportunity to learn from the best and grow on multiple dimensions. While the construction of Gera’s River of Joy proceeds at a steady pace, we wanted to ensure that the children of our ChildCentric Homes begin reaping the benefits of the exclusive associations with the best in their fields. We will endeavour to take other academies live as well. We hope that the children of Gera’s River of Joy make the most of it.”

Gera’s Song of Joy, Gera Developments’ ChildCentric project in Pune has been completed and handed over more than a year back. The academies are functional and well managed and children are immensely benefiting from them. A technology intervention, the GeraWorld app which, amongst others, helps parents manage enrolment and tracking of the ChildCentric academy programs. With its launch in Goa at Gera’s River of Joy the same operational efficies will be extended to this project as well.
