Perhaps I Should Stick to Tennis!
A few weeks ago I visited Quinta do Lago in the Algarve for the launch of The Campus, which is a fabulous new complex with tennis courts, paddle tennis courts, a football pitch, gym, and bikes for hire.
The launch coincided with one of of Judy Murray's tennis camps, and so a bunch of media were invited to join her for a session. Tennis was my first love, in fact it was my life growing up, playing tournaments all over the country, but took over many years ago and I haven't played properly for years. Sometimes I wonder why! I'm much better at tennis than golf, but that's another story that you can read about in Naga Munchetty's column in the Jan/Feb issue of Women & Golf.
It was great to get back on a court, and Judy Murray was brilliant. There was a range of players from complete beginners to those that had played before, but she got us doing basic drills that involved everyone, before we started running round the court playing games that were so much fun.
Back to golf, a session at the Paul McGinley Academy gave me more swing thoughts - it's definitely a case of needing to go a few steps back to go forward again! I need to add a smash bag to my Christmas list to get my hands going forward to improve my impact position. Plenty to think about on the range this winter including all the tips I've received this year through the Hive learning programme. Onwards and upwards!
