DAVID Beckham bulldozed his son Romeo’s £30,000 tennis court and transformed it into a five-a-side football pitch.
The state-of-the art court was designed for Romeo, 17, back in 2018 when Victoria reckoned he could become the next Andy Murray.
The youngster’s promising tennis ability prompted Becks to shell out £30,000 for the all-weather sports court as well as training sessions with top players.
He previously played with Andy Murray and Bulgarian tennis ace Grigor Dimitrov and trained at the elite Queen’s Club in West Kensington, London.
World No 6 Grigor told Hello after a training session with the teenager: “Romeo is such a big tennis fan, it’s unbelievable.
“And he’s quite crafty to be honest, and pretty talented.
“So if he keeps on going the same way, he will go far. He’s very dedicated.”
Romeo, also received some private tennis tuition whilst in Miami in April 2018 by the then World No 2 – women’s player Caroline Wozniacki.
But barely a year after the court was finished Romeo’s enthusiasm for the sport waned and he has not posted any photos of himself playing tennis since September 2019.
Now workmen – who are renovating the £6million Cotswolds pile – have replaced the all-weather court with a five-a-side footie pitch.
The green, completed last month, has seen the Beckham children give Golden Balls a run for his money as they practice their ball skills.
The family have posted numerous pictures of them having a kick about on social media.
Diggers have been on the family’s country pad since June as the former England ace wants to raise the level of the ground to stop tourists peeking in.
Posh and Becks are also at odds with neighbours over their plans for the kidney-shaped lake – having already clashed over the addition of a security gatehouse on the site.
David Beckham has been approached for comment.
