Tennis on the Road aims to develop a workforce in Scotland to help deliver tennis to children.

Annerle Douglas, secretary of Forres Tennis Club, was delighted to welcome Judy.

She said: "It was such a fantastic opportunity and a real honour. It was great to see such a good turnout of parents, helpers and children taking part and hopefully learning some new skills on how to engage children into the game.

"This is certainly an area that the club would like to take forward and hopefully this will encourage more Forres families to go to the courts.

"Forres Tennis Club aims to help get the local community fir and playing more sports and it is hoped the that visit of Judy and Kris will inspire more local folk to visit the courts and start playing tennis."
