Gen-Next Cricket Institute is a professional cricket coaching centre, located in the hub of Chennai. Ravichandran Ashwin is Gen-Next’s Brand Ambassador & Chief Mentor. The institute, run by Ashwin’s father, Mr.N.Ravichandran, prides itself in producing high quality cricketers.
The academy is run at the picturesque RKM Grounds in GN Chetty Road, T Nagar, Chennai. The primary activities of Gen-Next are: High Performance Academy, Weekend Coaching Program & Tournaments.
Gen-Next’s High Performance, Ashwin’s brain child, is a high-octane, intense everyday program offering personalised coaching, that involves training at the gym (fitness) in the mornings & training at the ground (Cricket) in the evenings.
Vision 2020 is a personalised program designed exclusively by R.Ashwin to identify tomorrow’s cricketing superstars.
The weekend coaching program is an annual program that runs on all weekend mornings (Saturdays & Sundays) from June to March. The program is designed for kids, who are beginners and for adults, who don’t have the time to commit to cricket full time.
Gen-Next conducts tournaments periodically. In June 2016, Gen-Next, in collaboration with Gameday, conducted RESONANCE, a 48 team, 284 player, 5 over, 8 vs 8 tennis ball extravaganza, reflecting periodic peaks in cricketing intensity.
I feel only mad people succeed in life and if you're mad about something and believe in something, you will come out on top. - Ravichandran Ashwin
Gen-Next has 7 high quality turf wickets. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Ashwin trains regularly at the grounds. The facility also has 4 matting wickets & 1 concrete wicket. Teams rent nets & utilise our facility.
