Judy Murray to Host "Miss Hits" Event in Winchester...
Great Britain’s Fed Cup captain, Judy Murray, will host the first Miss Hits coaching event in the South East region at the Club next Tuesday 5th May. The event will run from 10AM until late afternoon.
Devised by Judy Murray, Miss Hits is aimed at inspiring girls aged 5 to 8 to get involved in tennis, in a fun, lively, all-girl environment, where they can develop their coordination, get to know all the strokes and learn about the game through the Miss-Hits characters.
The five-hour course will be delivered by Judy Murray. Sport Hampshire & IOW will be hosting the event in partnership with the LTA as part of their Project 500 initiative to get more women into coaching but other Project 500 counties have representation on this first course.
Judy will be training 24 female coaches, not all from a tennis background and is passionate about growing the female coach network and commented “coaching has long been considered a male domain. It's time to change that and Project 500 is leading the way.”
More information on Miss Hits can be found on the Miss Hits website.
Members should have the opportunity to see Judy in action at the Club but are asked to respect the fact that she is working and delivering the course to the participants.
