Miss-Hits is a fun starter programme designed by Judy Murray to introduce girls age 5-8 to tennis. The Miss-Hits are 6 animated characters who each represent a tennis shot. Faith Forehand and her gang will help girls to develop the skills needed to play tennis and will create a group of friends to play with. It’s a non-technical course so you don’t need to be a qualified coach to deliver it. Full of simple skill building activities and games. Perfect for teachers, students, mums, grandmothers, sports leaders, community workers and club members. Miss-Hits makes starter tennis delivery simple to do and fun to teach.
