Renowned tennis coach Judy Murray paid a visit to Girvan Academy on Thursday as part of a programme designed to pass on top tennis tips to youngsters.

The Tennis on the Road team in conjunction with South Ayrshire Active Schools were at the Academy to highlight simple games to the kids to help them get into tennis.

Judy, who is coach of Great Britain’s ladies Fed Cup team famously taught sons Andy and Jamie as they were beginning their careers and Girvan Academy pupils and cluster schools were the latest to benefit from her top level coaching.

The aim of the visit was for Judy to give parents, coaches, teachers and others the simple tools required to perhaps find the next Andy or Jamie Murray in local schools.
