Kisakallio Tennis Kisakallio Tennis is a tennis think tank and a training center located within Kisakallio Sports Institute, at Lohja, south of Finland, near Helsinki. Everything at Kisakallio Tennis aims at the learning of the players. Our aim is to provide the best possible environment for this. The heart of Kisakallio Tennis is the newly built indoor training center with four hard courts, designed from the beginning to the end with only one thing in mind: the playing and training experience. Our center is simply a very good place to play and practice tennis. The premises include also a track and field training possibility, and they turn easily into floor ball, futsal, gymnastics and marshal arts practice environments. Within 150 kilometers there lives over half of the population of Finland, and even a larger percentage of the tennis players in the country. The location and quality transport connections (airport 40 min., major ports 1 hour) have made Kisakallio Tennis into a well functioning practice environment for Finnish and foreign clubs and national teams. Pasi Virtanen from Kisakallio Tennis team and Jurgen Zopp (ATP 88) and Jurgen Zopp (ATP 71, career high) are a frequent sight at are a the premises. We work to support and complement training at local tennis clubs, we analyze play techniques and play tactics, and master all in depth physical tests for tennis players, we build personal training programs and carry out intensive training camps with special focus areas. Our team offers tennis training from the beginners’ classes to more advanced levels – but always from the same premise centered around learning experience. Kisakallio Tennis has also gained recognition as an organizer of interesting tennis events. In addition to more than 20 national competitions (Finnish Championships, SEB Junior Grand Prix, Junior League, Men’s and Women’s national competitions) we organize yearly three to four big international events, which bring players from around Europe and the world to Lohja and raise this small city to the awareness – and even to the center of attention – of everybody interested in sports. After Kisakallio Junior Open (Tennis Europe Junior Tour 2013) at hand, which is a real breading ground for the tennis stars of tomorrow, our plans next include ITF 18 and Tennis Europe Senior Tour competitions. And of course the 4rd Kisakallio Junior Open TE12 will be held at the end of October 2014.

Every year we offer to companies and other partners cooperation, visibility and attention in these events in tailor made fashion. In addition to more traditional means, we can offer visibility in staff outfits and at Kisakallio Tennis Web TV streaming all matches, we offer customer and employee events, product placement and demonstrations as well as sales during the events. The head architects of Kisakallio Tennis are Repe Jokinen and Akseli Virtanen. Repe Jokinen has worked as the Finnish Davis Cup team captain, the head coach of Finnish national team and as the personal coach of many young players making it into professional tour like Tuomas Ketola, Juho Paukku, and Aki Rahunen who entered ATP top 100 under 18 year of age. Docent, Dr.Sc. (Econ.) Akseli Virtanen is a docent at Aalto University School of Business and the director of Future Art Base research unit of new economic theory and creative organization.

The Landscape in Kisakallio Tennis Hall

We’ve been thinking about people who train and play at Kisakallio Tennis as well as visitors. The idea for the landscape was to bring a picture that can be at the same time impressive at first but also one that you can actually be with day by day.

The scale of players in the image comes from Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s paintings. They represent different models of society or community. In his religious scenes, which were particularly revolutionary painting for the 16th century, you can actually see mostly folk around and beside the usually cen- tral and alone hero. I’ve thought about it after visiting Lohja, and watching a tennis competition there. It was touching to see the aliveness and largeness of community around it. That brought to mind Bruegel and this more com- plex picture of tennis community as more interesting than just concentrating on the player heroe.

The idea for the landscape comes from preparing traditional Japanese tea room for the tea ritual. It is a very minimal space that has only what is necessary for meeting and conversation. It somehow stuck in me that tennis game is somehow a similar encounter between two in minimal conditions. Yet in the tea room, the garden, flowers and kakemono calligraphy or landscape has an important role. They bring elements from outside world to the meeting to make it complete. The meeting never takes place in a void. My thoughts on it were to bring a landscape as a grounding element. The meeting of the players does not happen in a completely abstract situation and the landscape reminds of this.

We thought also about the Japanese concept ‘mu’, which is somewhat ‘emptiness’ but still potential and active. In the image it is the birds that are flying on the sky. Traditionally, the ever-changing formation of birds is considered ‘mu’. It is the potentiality dwelling in every situation, which we should never forget. In the middle of the image, the flying pieces of paper, from the famous 18th century Hokusai wood print “Sudden Gust of Wind”, which has also been re-created wonderfully by Jeff Wall, is also following this concept. The flow and fury of the great wave refers to the same Japanese wood print tradition. “Kataja”, the juniper tree cut in a bonsai way, is the symbol of Kisakallio Tennis, and that of resilience.
