She certainly had a lot to do with Andy Murray becoming a tennis champion, so one of your kids could follow in his footsteps. For Andy’s mum Judy Murray is running Junior Tennis Camps at a Portugal hotel.
The former Great British Federation Cup captain has teamed up with The Campus, Europe’s newest premier multi-sport and wellness resort at the five-star Quinta do Lago resort in the Algarve.
Quinta do Lago, one of the most highly regarded luxury golf and residential developments in Europe, is set among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park. Judy will run four one-week long junior tennis camps over the next year and host some coach education workshops for the coaching team.
Judy’s first junior tennis camp is being held during half-term week from October 29 to November 2.
She said: “I’m delighted to have partnered with The Campus at Quinta do Lago and am looking forward to welcoming children of all ages and abilities to my inaugural tennis camp in October half-term.
“I understand very well what tennis will demand of a young player, so I focus on developing adaptable, problem-solving athletes. My philosophy is all about creating games and exercises that will do the teaching for me, so that players learn without realising.”

During the camps, Judy will share fun games and exercises that helped her sons Jamie and Andy to develop the skills and variety they needed to play tennis and helped them get to the top of the world game.
The junior tennis camps will offer a mix of skill-building activities, tennis-specific movement training, interactive games and recreational team competitions, designed for all ages and standard of players.
The Campus, just 15 minutes from Faro airport, has two artificial clay and four acrylic tennis courts, all built to current International Tennis Federation tournament standards. Tennis Director and Head Tennis Professional, Zé Pereira Lopes, adds: “We’re thrilled to be working with Judy Murray and inspire the next generation to pick up a racquet – whatever your level. We’re here to support you and make sure you have fun with your family and friends. We invite all guests to ‘Be Bold’ and ‘Bring Your Game’ with Judy Murray! Our team, led by Judy, will stretch you and test your game, and push your limits to help you achieve your goals. We look forward to seeing you in the sunny Algarve in October, and giving you our usual warm welcome. The ball’s in your court!”
