To celebrate the release of Judy Murray’s new book Knowing the Score and her OBE awarded to her in the Queen’s Birthday list, we decided to make this weeks #womenswednesday all about her!
I think its safe to say that Judy has impacted hundreds if not thousands of peoples lives along her tennis journey. Having set up the tennis structure in Scotland, inspiring children across the country to take part in the sport, to launching her own tennis coaching programmes (Miss Hits & She Rallies) encouraging young girls to take part in tennis and adult women to coach tennis – Judy has been a role model, mentor and inspiration to us all.
Throughout her book, Judy mentions many women in her life that helped her along her tennis journey, supporting her progression as a female coach. This is something that Judy see’s as paramount to her success and promised herself that one day she would do all she could to create as many opportunities for women in sport as she could.
So, we want to know, who is your female role model? Who is the woman who has inspired you to take your path into coaching, or has given you the belief that you can achieve the unachievable or has given you a push in the right direction along your own coaching journey?
