Judy Murray: Knowing The Score - in conversation with Alexandra Heminsley

As mother to tennis World #1 champions Jamie and Andy Murray, Scottish National Coach, coach of the women’s Fed Cup, and general all-round can-do woman of wonder, Judy Murray is the ultimate role model for believing in yourself and reaching out to ambition. As a parent, coach, leader, she is an inspiration who has revolutionised British tennis. 

From the soggy community courts of Dunblane to the white heat of Centre Court at Wimbledon, Judy Murray’s extraordinary memoir charts the challenges she has faced, from desperate finances and growing pains to entrenched sexism. Judy has recently pioneered initiatives Miss-Hits and She Rallies to grow the profile and numbers in women’s tennis. As if that wasn’t enough, in 2014 Judy proved her mettle off the tennis court when she strutted her stuff on Strictly Come Dancing with her dancing partner Anton du Beke.

Judy will be in conversation with Alexandra Heminsley, bestselling author of Running Like a Girl and Leap In. Alexandra is a journalist and broadcaster, she reviews for Sara Cox’s BBC Radio 2 Book Club, is the former books editor of Elle magazine, and was the ghostwriter for Judy Murray's bestselling autobiography.
