Judy Murray has backed calls for tennis courts at a north-east park to be resurfaced and have floodlights installed.
The coach and mother of Wimbledon champions Andy and Jamie Murray voiced support for work to improve two tennis courts at The Den play park in Auchenblae.
Mrs Murray founded the programme Tennis on the Road in 2015 to help build a workforce to deliver starter tennis to adults and children.
Lead coach of Tennis on the Road Kris Soutar said: “The Den at Auchenblae play park, with two tennis courts end to end, would be a lovely spot for a nice game of tennis on a summer’s night.
“No houses nearby – so perfect for floodlights and a resurface.”
And now Mrs Murray has backed the idea online – pledging to build a workforce for the community if the courts were fixed.
She said: “How about it Aberdeenshire Council?
“Looks like a gorgeous setting. Perfect for families and community engagement.
“If (they) fix the courts, I’ll build a tennis workforce from the local community.”
The response to Mrs Murray’s offer for the Den, which is owned by the Auchenblae community, has been positive.
Lindsay Shaw, treasurer of Auchenblae Tennis Club, said: “It is encouraging that she has reached out about this.
“The Den has a number of facilities that we have to find funding for their upkeep.
“We are looking at options such as lottery funding and local wind farms.
“I would be enthusiastic to see them revamped. We would welcome any support from Judy Murray and are keen for anyone to get involved.”
