Agam Bernardini was born in Milan on September 26th, 1944 and graduated in Italian
Literature at the University of Rome.
In 1979, he went to India, where he got the idea to apply to tennis the techniques of relaxation, centring and attention that he was learning and practicing to improve the quality of his life.
He started to teach tennis with this new approach, in India and in Europe, in individual and group lessons, with great success and finally he decided to write the book Zen and the Art of Playing Tennis to make available to everybody the techniques and the exercises to improve the mental and psychological side of the game of tennis.
Agam Bernardini is now teaching tennis with this new approach that he calls “Zennis” and gives conferences and workshops in Italy and Europe.
