Tennis presents a number of challenges and opportunities to prep schools. It is a game for which most schools have some facilities, and which appeals to both boys and girls. It can be more inclusive and active than other summer term activities, and fits neatly into a games lesson. On the other hand, it can have a high entry level of skill, and often there are not enough courts for all who want to play.
In this unique conference, Judy Murray will help schools address these issues. She will demonstrate exciting and accessible ways of presenting the game in prep schools, to pupils of all ages and abilities. She will explain how conventional hurdles of group size, mixed abilities and limited facilities can be imaginatively overcome, and how all children can be inspired to love the game.
