A PRIMARY school pupil is the first to benefit from Peebles Lawn Tennis Club's improved facilities after being called by Scotland.

Louis Kirkpatrick has been selected to play for his country against both Wales and England next month.

The primary five pupil at Kingsland Primary is part of the Scotland Under 9s team heading for Shrewsbury.

Louis, who has been part of the Scotland development squad since last September, already trains four times a week at indoor facilities in Edinburgh and Stirling.

But the new floodlit courts in Peebles have allowed additional training sessions over the winter.

Dad Graeme told us: "The fantastic new lights and court at Peebles Lawn Tennis Club allow him to do more training closer to home."
