Four coaches from Harpenden Lawn Tennis Club (HLTC) received expert tutoring from Judy Murray as they look to encourage more girls into the game.

Miss-Hits was designed by Murray and delivered by female coaches to provide role models for the girls, aged between five and eight.

The event at Hertford Heath was attended by Bridie Amos, Megan Godfrey-Evans, Vicky Carr and Angela Kershaw.

HLTC head coach David Lawlor said: “Miss-Hits is just the sort of initiative we want to encourage. We truly believe that sport brings a lifetime of benefit to young people and we want to make it fun so that they participate and stay in the sport.”

HLTC has already introduced its first Miss-Hits sessions at the Sauncey Wood School Breakfast Club and St Dominic’s.

Godfrey-Evans said: “Once they have learned the basics through Miss-Hits, they are more likely to approach mini-tennis sessions, or other sports, with confidence.”
