• 1 MINUTE READ
The LTA is proudly teaming up with Judy Murray to launch She Rallies, a new initiative to get more women and girls involved in tennis.
Spearheaded by Judy and her passion for the game, She Rallies is part of the LTA’s commitment to growing tennis from the grassroots up by encouraging more girls to take up the sport.
The programme kicks off this weekend with a first-of-its kind female coaches' conference on Friday, February 3. Attendees will have the chance to hear from performance coach Emma Doyle, award-winning journalist Sue Mott, sports psychologist Dr Leanne Rimmer, Caroline McHugh, founder and CEO of IDOLOGY, and Judy herself, with plenty of ideas and networking opportunities on offer to help coaches grow the game.
Saturday and Sunday will then be dedicated to training a select group of She Rallies ambassadors who will be given the tools so they can return to their regions and provide training and equipment for other women from tennis and non-tennis backgrounds.
Judy Murray said: “There is still a significant gap in terms of players and coaches at all levels of the women’s game. This has to change. She Rallies will create opportunities in tennis for women and girls from the grassroots through to international level.
“The coaches conference on February 3 is a fantastic way to kick-start a really exciting programme and one that will have a positive impact on the growth and profile of women’s tennis throughout the UK.”
