Judy Murray will host a five-day junior tennis camp at The Campus from the 19th – 23rd August 2019 and a three-day adult tennis camp from 21st – 23rd August 2019
Judy will join a team of coaches for fun and action-packed coaching camps, hosting a five-day junior tennis camp from the 19th – 23rd August and also a three-day adult tennis from 21st – 23rd August 2019. The camps will focus on grass-roots coaching and development, making tennis fun for juniors of all abilities and learning skills from one of the most respected tennis coaches and ‘mums’ in the game. Judy will encourage youngsters to get active in the magnificent surrounds of The Campus, Europe’s newest multi-sport and wellness hub.
Judy will offer a unique tennis coaching experience for juniors and adults who will benefit enormously from her many years of years of coaching at all levels of the game and which took her sons to No.1 in the world! Judy says:
The camps are full of the exercises and games that I played with Jamie and Andy when they were growing up. We focus on three things: skill-building activities, tennis specific movement training and creating fun competition. Tennis is a “hit, move and think sport” so the camps aim to help players of all levels to do those three things at the same time…..while having a whole lot of fun!
