Felicitation of Mr. Jasjit Singh

As India celebrates the achievements of its young athletes, Hima Das, Komalika Bari, PV Sindhu, Sumit Nagal, etc., let us also celebrate the achievements of former athletes who persevered against all odds to put India on the world map at a time when information was relayed through traditional media of newspapers only.


The International Lawn Tennis Club of India recognized the achievements of one of India’s finest Davis Cup players, Jasjit Singh. Aged 71 years now, he achieved a career high ranking of 89 in 1974.


Mr. Nandan Bal, Former India Davis Cup player and coach, Mr. Anil Khanna, President of the All India Tennis Association, and Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Former Chief Minister of Haryana, felicitated Mr. Jasjit Singh at a simple ceremony in the Delhi Tennis Association stadium on August 24th 2019.
