EBAT Players Receive Mentoring From Anne Keothavong and Judy Murray
Posted 12 Dec 2016
An Inspiring Tale To Tell
Former British Women’s Number 1, Anne Keothavong, took part in a mentoring session with the girls. Anne won a total of 20 International Tennis Federation singles titles and broke into the world top 50 in 2009. Since retiring in 2013 she has become a member of the BT Sport tennis coverage team alongside Elena Baltacha Foundation Patron, Martina Navratilova. Anne met the girls, answered questions and talked to them about her career and the journey she made from junior to British Number 1 five times.
Our Incredible Foundation Patron
Anne was also joined by Judy Murray, one of the most respected figures in the sport of tennis. It’s not the first time
Judy has given her time to EBAT players, as a Foundation Patron she has made several trips to run sessions in Ipswich,
and was a much loved friend and mentor to our own Bally. It’s been an incredible year for the Murray family, and the
EBAT girls wanted to know all about Andy and Jamie’s success this year.
Anne and Judy took part in some on-court training and put the girls through their paces with exercise routines and drills designed to get them focussed on movement and speed…and of course the whole day was about having fun and enjoying tennis.
A Big Thank You
We’d like to express our gratitude and say a big thank you to Anne and Judy from the Foundation and the EBAT players, coaches and parents. Both women offered invaluable advice and insight which we’ll no doubt see put into practise on the tournament circuit in the coming weeks, months and years.
