A CHARITY that aims to bring tennis into rural and disadvantaged areas of Scotland will visit Clydebank next week.

The Judy Murray Foundation, established by Sir Andy’s mother, Judy Murray OBE, will host a session introducing residents to the sport in Whitecrook.

Following on from her sons Andy and Jamie becoming world number one in single and double competitions respectively, Judy wanted to capitalise on the growing popularity of the sport in the country and created her foundation.

The free introduction tennis session will take place at Centre81 on Thursday, February 20, from 10.30am to noon, with lunch included after the practice.

Gil Paterson, MSP for Clydebank, said: “Tennis is a sport for everyone, and this is a great opportunity for people across Clydebank to take the first steps in learning a new activity.

“I applaud the work of the Judy Murray Foundation, because disadvantaged communities may not have had access or the opportunities to take up tennis like this.”
