Love at First Swing: Georgia’s Tennis Journey from Player to Spectator
Recent Business Management graduate, Georgia, really got into playing tennis during her time as a student.
EMBRACING THE COURT
In January, she first decided to try out one of our Cardio Tennis sessions, which involves completing cardio-based circuits whilst hitting tennis balls!
After going to a few sessions, Tennis coordinator, Jack, suggested that Georgia should try out the popular Try-a-Sport tennis course, helping her develop her skills week by week. Other than P.E back in school, Georgia hadn’t really engaged in any tennis activity in a while.
Near the end of the term Jack found himself with a spare ticket to the Rothesay Classic Tennis Tournament, taking place at the Priory in Edgbaston – just a short walk from campus! He offered them to Georgia who saw it as a great opportunity to get a glimpse of the action of her new found passion.
FROM THE SIDELINES
Georgia went for the afternoon and saw a few matches which she really enjoyed, further inspiring her to keep playing tennis as a graduate.
‘I had a great centre court seat and got to see some tough competition, including Katie Boulter, current British Women’s number one.’
