A tennis coach has met with some top sporting bods and soaked up the experience of the Fed Cup which she hopes will benefit youngsters at Halton Tennis Centre.

Jemima King, head of Halton Tennis Centre’s Aspire to Excel programme, was nominated to attend an event at the National Tennis Centre where she met with the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Maria Miller, the British Fed Cup team and Judy Murray, Andy’s mother (pictured).

Jemima was nominated as a representative of Judy Murray and the LTA’s work to support female coaches in Great Britain.

The Halton coach spoke to Maria Miller about her experience and the Fed Cup – which started in Budapest on Tuesday and ended on Friday.

Jemima said: “I am looking forward to watching the GB Fed Cup team play against Lithuania, Romania and Hungary this week. It will be a tough tie for the team, however win or lose I am certain to learn a lot from this experience and bring back new ideas and observations for our upcoming juniors.”
