Scotland hopes to build on recent success of Andy Murray

Sportscotland and Tennis Scotland have launched a new joint four-year investment stream aimed at capitalising on Andy Murray's Wimbledon win and the increased interest towards the sport.

Sportscotland is investing £5.8m into tennis in Scotland over the next four years to help modernise and develop the sport's structure by improving facilities, as well as widening access.

Sports Minister Shona Robison said: "Andy's win was an emotional moment for Scotland and the whole country has been inspired by his brilliant performance.

"This money is all about making sure the right facilities are there to help people get more active, as well as helping to create the tennis stars of the future."
