Teen Girls Starter Tennis – The aim is to increase the number of teenage girls trying tennis and keeping them in the game. Teachers, students, club members, parents and sports/youth leaders with be provided with lots of individual, paired and team activities for developing the skills needed to play tennis, along with many fun games that provide a basic introduction to tactical doubles play and court positioning. Teen tennis is for girls aged 11+, it does not require a tennis court and will focus on delivering to big numbers in whatever space is available. This course will make tennis both simple and fun to deliver in schools, parks and clubs.

Judy Murray said, “‚ÄúThere is still a significant gender gap in terms of players and coaches at all levels of the game. By rallying together, we can create opportunities in tennis from the grassroots up.” she added, “Whether you‚Äôre an existing tennis coach, teacher, parent, student, youth worker, brownie leader or an enthusiastic club member, I have designed 4 courses as part of ‚ÄėShe Rallies‚Äė, supported by The LTA, which will give you the skills and ideas to deliver starter training and fun competition to girls and women in your community.”

“If we rally together ‚Äď pun intended ‚Äď we will make a difference.‚ÄĚ
