Judy Murray's a patron of the charity which Elena runs with her coach Nino Severino.

As well as being a successful coach in her own right she is also the current captain of the British Fed Cup team.

"The whole thing is about making our sport more accessible and affordable. There is snow on the ground there was a blizzard when I came and and you're very fortunate to have a facility here where girls can play all year round."
