Anyone for Tennis?
'She Rallies' visit Upton.
On Monday 25th June, the PE department and Year 12 A Level pupils took part in the She Rallies tennis course. Judy Murray is the founder of the She Rallies organisation which she has set up because ...
“There 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. Whether you’re an existing tennis coach, teacher, parent, student, youth worker, brownie leader or an enthusiastic club member, I have designed 4 courses as part of ‘She Rallies‘, 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 – pun intended – we will make a difference.”
The PE department aims to utilise the skills learnt on the course to instil the vision of ‘She Rallies’ through attracting and retaining more girls paying tennis. A huge thank you to our local She Rallies Ambassadors Sue and Viv who delivered a fun and engaging She Rallies course.
Is your daughter interested in playing tennis? Do you need information on local tennis clubs and opportunities to get your daughter involved?
Please contact a member of the PE department and they would be happy to pass on information of local clubs in your area.
