Tennis Scotland is to get £12m in a bid to capitalise on the Murray brothers’ legacy.
The funding agreement with the Lawn Tennis Asssociation has been described as a “game-changer” by Tennis Scotland chief executive Blane Dodds.
It said the funding would be spent on indoor facilities and getting more children into the sport.
Dodds said: “The investment in capital for the facilities is going to be a game-changer.
“There are going to be many facilities across Scotland, we have a world-class performance academy here, that is a game-changer.”
Judy Murray, coach mum of major winners Andy and Jamie, said the funding would help make the most of her sons’ achievements and those of wheelchair champion Gordon Reid.
She said: “This is great news for tennis in Scotland and I’m delighted to see the LTA making this commitment to investing in the sport over the next couple of years.”
