Win A Signed EBAT Tennis Shirt
Posted 17th Jan
EBAT Shirt Signed by Judy Murray, Anne Keothavong, Jo Konta, Jamie Murray, James Ward & Louis Cayer!
The 2017 tennis season has kicked off and it looks as though it could be one of the most exciting ever from a British point of view. Jo Konta, James Ward, Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund, Heather Watson and Naomi Broady are all looking to make an impact on the tour this year, and then there’s the newly honoured Murray brothers, who’ll both be looking to add to their list of titles.
To celebrate these exciting times the Elena Baltacha Foundation are giving away a unique piece of tennis memorabilia. We have an EBAT (Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis) tennis top to give away, signed by some of the biggest names in British tennis today.
In December last year a group of EBAT players, coaches and parents visited the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton to take part in a day of coaching and mentoring with Judy Murray and Anne Keothavong. At that session both Judy and Anne kindly signed the tennis shirt we are giving away. Also in the building on the same day were Jo Konta, Jamie Murray, James Ward and Louis Cayer, all of whom also signed the shirt. We thank them all for giving us a truly unique piece of tennis memorabilia.
