Jessica Moore gets back to the grassroots of tennis with a series of Masterclasses in Bendigo:
Looking back on a career filled with grand slam appearances and years spent on the road as a tennis professional, Jessica Moore loves getting back to the grassroots of the sport.
Moore hosted a series of masterclass sessions at the Fosterville Gold Tennis Centre, providing an insight into her journey from amateur to a professional player as well as teaching participants on-court skills.
Moore grew up in Williams in Western Australia, a small town south-west of Perth where her earliest memories of tennis were playing at the local club with her brother.
“That’s what you do when you live in the country, it’s all about sport,” Moore said.
Moore has experience playing at all four tennis grand slams (Wimbledon, Australian, US and French Opens) with a career high rank of 132 (singles) and 67 (doubles).
Amidst a busy schedule in the lead-up to the Australian Open, Moore found time to come to Bendigo to work with tennis juniors.
“As a player it feels good to be able to give back,” Moore said.
“I love coming out to country communities to work with kids and give them the opportunity to learn about the sport.”
