With close to 40 years of counselling and coaching tennis, I saw the need for an accessible girls-only tennis program. In Her Court combines my two passions to offer a program that addresses both the physical and mental well-being of its participants. Our goal is to remove the barriers preventing girls from playing and staying in tennis.
– Heather Tasker-Brown (Founder)
In Her Court’s vision is to increase girls’ participation in tennis and to develop strong social-emotional skills to promote a lifetime of health and well-being both physically and emotionally.
Our mission is to create a safe environment for girls so that they are empowered to reach their personal potential both in sport and life.
We TEACH with Fun!
Supporting each other and working together improves our effort and leads to improved individual and team performance.
The ability to recognize and celebrate our own and someone else’s potential. To develop the belief that one has power and control over one’s own life.
The acceptance of oneself and others on the court and in life. Accepting our mistakes and recognizing them as an opportunity to learn from them to help improve our game and individual growth.
The belief that it is beneficial for each of us to be part of a larger group, including one’s family, team, school and the larger community.
The importance of taking care of our physical, social and mental health as part of our overall well-being.
Tennis should be fun! Having fun allows us to connect and create bonds; be motivated to learn; practice and play as well as the reason we come back for more!
