A £1.5m three-court indoor tennis centre is being proposed at the King George V leisure complex in Dumfries.
Tennis Scotland has identified Dumfries and Galloway as one of six priority areas for investment in the sport, and it hopes the project will help develop the sport in the south west of Scotland.
Dumfries and Galloway Council is being asked to agree to the project, which would not come at any capital cost to the local authority. Members of the Council’s Communities Committee will hear about proposals to build the facility when they meet on Tuesday 28 January.
Tennis Scotland and Sport Scotland are investing in the sport through the Transforming Scottish Indoor Tennis Fund (TSITF).
Other areas identified for investment are Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, the Highlands and the Scottish Borders.
The scheme would provide £1m towards the Dumfries scheme. A further £500,000 would come from other sources.
