On Wednesday 31st May, we had the honour of being invited along to a ‘She Rallies’ event in Manchester spending the day with Judy Murray.  The aim of the event was to empower and expand the number of women and girls coaching and playing tennis across the UK. Stacey, a valued and experienced coach of ours, attended the course and is now well on her way to becoming a She Rallies Activator. Once her training is complete, Stacey will be in a position to coach across the region, encouraging more girls and women to pick up a racket in fun environment.

The campaign has been implemented by Judy Murray and this is what she had to say:

“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.”

At Keep Active, we always strive to have our coaches involved in the best professional development available.  We are extremely grateful to Stephanie Eadon, the ‘She Rallies’ Ambassador in the North for making this opportunity available to us.

We look forward to making the ‘She Rallies’ programme part of our extensive range of activities we offer.
