Ash Barty: Champion

Barty, Ash

Official young readers edition of Ash Barty’s #1 bestselling and award-winning memoir.

It’s a tennis story. It’s a family story. It’s a teamwork story. It’s the story of how I got to where and who I am today.

My story is about the power and joy of doing that thing you love and seeing where it can take you.

It reflects on my whole tennis journey – from the first time I picked up a racquet as a young girl in Queensland, to the night I packed up my tennis bag at Melbourne Park after winning the 2022 Australian Open. It explains how I worked through self-doubt, homesickness and a break from the sport to realise my tennis dreams, winning Wimbledon and ranking number 1 in the world.

Maybe my story will inspire you to follow your dreams – I really hope it does.
