Judy Murray, the worlds No 1 tennis mom, was in Sutton Lawn Tennis Club on Saturday 11th March, to officially open their new indoor tennis airhall, on the day that saw their two new state-of-the art squash courts also open. She held two tennis clinics, one for junior members and one for seniors.
There was something to learn for kids and adults of all ages …. and all abilities …. lots of skills training, tips and anecdotes about her famous boys, Andy and Jamie. Following the clinics and after endless photos and autograph signing, Judy officially opened the new and improved airhall. She was clearly impressed by the size of the club and by the recent additions of new airhall; new squash courts and gym but especially by the amazing community spirit within the club, which she referred to in her speech. She joined members for tea and lots of tennis-themed cakes in the club-house after the presentation, where her relaxed humour and warmth were there for all to see!
Judy also got to meet new CEO of Tennis Ireland (and local lad) Richard Fahy – as well as do an exclusive interview with Johnny Watterson of The Irish Times! What a proud day for Sutton LTC. Thanks to Judy for making the visit.
