On Sunday the 7th of July, the long overdue and much anticipated British Sporting achievement finally happened. 26 year old Andy Murray won his first Wimbledon title and ended Britain’s 77-year wait for a men’s champion with a hard-fought victory over world number one Novak Djokovic.
In an atmosphere reminiscent of his Olympic final win last summer, Murray was willed on by the majority of the 15,000 spectators on Centre Court, thousands watching on the nearby big screen and millions more around the country.
It’s not just on TV screens where centre court action is taking place though. A surge in interest around our quintessentially British sport is kicking off on a global scale.
It seems appropriate that we get in the spirit of upping our fitness and wellbeing sportsmanship standards in honour of our Tennis Hero – Andy Murray, in a sophisticated fashion.
360 Degrees Tennis can offer you and your family a tailor made coaching plan to reach your aspirations as an individual. Why not enjoy the summer and play on a professional all-weather tennis court boasting a panoramic view of the River Thames?
Head coach Tony Barratt has had 20 years of experience in the sports world and is a fully qualified Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and certified coach who can help you on your way to achieving your goals. Retaining a philosophy that understands each player is different, 360 Degrees Tennis will coach you in a manner where you grow as an individual. Just like Murray, you will develop your own style to become the best player that you can be, whilst also reducing any risk of injury.
If you have a child who is aged 5-11, why not let them acquire some new skills and try their hand at a spot of tennis over the summer holidays? You never know they could be the next Bartoli or Murray!
The Kid’s Tennis Academy offers weeklong courses starting from Monday 15th July through to Friday 6th September on Dolphin Square’s tennis courts in a fun and safe environment. They will learn the foundations of a tennis game- forehand, backhand, serve etc. through games and activities that will also advance their skills of balance, coordination and movement. They’ll also be placed in groups based on their age and level, in a class of no more than eight; offering them the best chances of developing as junior tennis players and perhaps, who knows, we might see them compete at Wimbledon one day!
