Learning to Love Prep School Tennis

with Judy Murray

Teaching Tennis in Schools with Judy Murray

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.

Judy Murray is a former Scottish international tennis player with 64 national titles to her name. She became Scottish National Coach in 1995, the same year that she became the first woman to pass the Lawn Tennis Association’s Performance Coach Award. She initiated the Scottish Development School programme which ultimately produced four Davis Cup players and one Fed Cup player, including her Grand-Slam-winning sons, Jamie and Andy. In 2011 Judy was appointed Captain of the British Fed Cup Team and used this role to grow the profile and numbers in women’s tennis across players and coaches. Judy has developed several tennis initiatives including Miss-Hits, a starter programme for girls age 5 to 8, Tennis on the Road, which takes tennis into remote and deprived parts of Scotland, and, most recently, She Rallies, a programme with the LTA, to encourage more women and girls into tennis across the UK.
