Famous tennis coach Judy Murray will be speaking about her successful career at The Beacon in Greenock next month.

Judy, in conversation with Times journalist and broadcaster Graham Spiers, discusses tennis, her first book, being a grandmother and encouraging women into sport.

The event takes place on 23 April at 7.30pm.

A former Scottish tennis international with 64 national title successes, Judy was appointed Scottish National Coach in 1995, becoming the first woman to pass the LTA’s Performance Coach Award. She initiated the Scottish Development School, producing four Davis Cup players and one Fed Cup player, including her Grand-Slam-winning sons, Jamie and Andy.

Judy has pioneered initiatives to grow the profile and numbers in women’s tennis, including: Miss-Hits, for girls aged five to eight; Tennis on the Road, taking tennis into remote and deprived areas; and She Rallies, to encourage more women and girls into tennis across the UK.
