Suffolk tennis coaches and county junior girls took part in a ‘Girl Power Day’ recently with international speaker, mentor and coach, Emma Doyle.

The day was funded by Suffolk LTA to support Judy Murray and the LTA’s ‘She Rallies’ initiative that aims to create more opportunities for women and girls in tennis.

The aim of the day was to inspire and empower the girls and build on coaches’ knowledge of working with girls at their venues. This is vital to the success of girls’ tennis in Suffolk.
