JUDY Murray treated tennis fans in Southampton this week by hosting a session for young players at a fitness chain.

The former Fed Cup captain came to David Lloyd Southampton West End, Botley Road, to encourage children to pick up a racket and shared her knowledge with coaches.

The 59-year-old has been working with David Lloyd Clubs as a coach consultant for three years now and will be touring the UK until May 24.

Judy said: “I think it is the best sport for the whole family, because you can play it from a young age right up into your 80s.”

She added: “It is a sport for life.”
