'Sidelines' and Judy Murray:

A huge thank you to Matthew Paterson who has been working on bringing our blog with all the coaching info into the 21st century and giving it a general overhaul.
Keep an eye on it over the next few weeks as all sections of the blog are being updated.
I’d like to draw your attention to the “sidelines” section. We are going to use this section to tell you about all the work that the coaching team do outwith the club programme to develop tennis in the local area. We would like to expand our team to include parent volunteers in the future. If anyone is interested in helping us to achieve our aims and objectives, please contact directly for a chat. We also have an exciting FREE opportunity for parents who may be interested in helping in a hands on coaching way to go on a training day with Judy Murray at Gleneagles on Saturday 22nd August from 10 - 3. No tennis experience required, again email Julie directly if interested.
