Murray’s magic inspires children

JUDY Murray visited the David Lloyd club in Woking to give a tennis training workshop to local children on the first stop in a six-day tour of the country.

The mother of world No1 singles player Sir Andy and former world No1 doubles players Jamie, gave a one-hour masterclass for the health and fitness clubs’ junior members.

The sessions are aimed at increasing participation in tennis and sport in general and encourage youngsters to get more active.

Judy said: “The same motor skills underpin every sport and these can be developed in a fun and natural way through family play.

“A child’s first port of call when they want to try any activity is the parent so the more we can engage the whole family, the better.”

Dave Clarke, Head of Junior Tennis at David Lloyd, said: “It was terrific having Judy down here today.

“It is great to see how Judy simplifies coaching for all levels, while managing to keep the sessions fun and engaging.”

David Bulgin, David Lloyd Clubs Group Racquets Manager, said: “We are very excited to be working with Judy Murray in her new role as coach consultant.”
