Johanna Konta and Candice Brown in the kitchen with British Tennis Team Members

British Tennis Team Members were put through their culinary paces by Johanna Konta and Candice Brown in a one-in-a-lifetime baking session on Tuesday.

The British No.1 and the 2016 Great British Bake-Off winner joined the lucky Team Members in baking a batch of festive jammy dodgers, all part of a competition prize that saw Members spend a day at the National Tennis Centre (NTC).

Swapping the court for the kitchen, Johanna proved to be the perfect kitchen-aid to Candice, showing off the culinary skills that came to the fore during Wimbledon when she baked muffins for her training team.

The prize was the latest in a series of money-can't-buy opportunities available to British Tennis Team Members. Previous winners have enjoyed a doubles masterclass with Jamie Murray and renowned coach Louis Cayer, and a meet-and-greet with Stan Wawrinka at The Queen’s Club.

Speaking after the activity, Johanna said: “I’ve loved today’s baking session and it’s something I’m really getting into it at the moment. I’ve picked up a few tips and I’m looking forward to putting them into practice soon. It’s been great meeting the British Tennis Membership winners too and sharing my passion for baking with them.”

Candice said: "As a huge tennis fan, it’s been great meeting Johanna and the winners of this amazing prize, and I’m happy to hear Johanna shares my love of baking too. It’s been brilliant watching all our British players in action this year and I’m excited to see more in 2018.” 

Prior to the baking activity, Team Members were treated to a day at the NTC, including a session with Johanna’s performance analyst to gain insights into her game and how the team prepare Johanna for matches against key opponents.
