World Tennis Day with Judy Murray

SheRallies 1 584wOn Monday 6 March we welcomed back Judy Murray to St George's to celebrate World Tennis Day. The event included some of our girls as well as students from Craigmount school who were taking part in coaching sessions with Judy and her coaching team. Over 50 Physical Education teachers from across Scotland attended two courses. The courses were focusing on how best to deliver tennis in schools and improving doubles tactics for school tennis teams. Both staff and pupils seemed to thoroughly enjoy the day and the opportunity to learn from Judy and her team.

St George's PE teachers are very excited about using content from the courses to develop tennis in the summer term. We have enjoyed watching moments from the event on STV news and in the newspapers. To catch up with how this day went go to our twitter account @stgeorges_sport for photos, videos and comments.
