THE mother of Scots sports star Andy Murray has told how she hopes to help make tennis accessible and affordable to all.

Judy Murray, 53, plans to build the Murray Tennis Centre for Scotland on a site near the family’s home town of Dunblane.

But she has told how costs may prove too much for her project, expected to need funding of at least £15 million.

She said: “This is my big goal. I want it to be something to leave behind. It would absolutely kill me if Andy finished his career in five years’ time or whenever and we didn’t have much to show for it here in Scotland. The opportunity is there. I’ve got to do it.

“We have this huge opportunity in Scotland. Tennis has gone through the roof and every kid in every primary school will know something about tennis and Andy.”
