Great Britain's Davis Cup hero Andy Murray hopes the triumph over Belgium will provide a lasting legacy.
Murray defeated David Goffin 6-3 7-5 6-3 on Sunday to seal a 3-1 victory for his country, having already overcome Ruben Bemelmans in his first singles match and joined brother Jamie in doubles success.
After celebrating Britain's first Davis Cup win since 1936, Murray called on the authorities to ensure the success does not go to waste.
"Davis Cup is completely different to watching individual tennis, you see all of the team bench, the flags, and supporters – there were something like 5,000 Brits watching, which is amazing for a tennis match," he said.
"Even people that don't normally watch tennis would have enjoyed the weekend because of the atmosphere and when it's for your country, people get into it as well, so I hope the governing body capitalises."
Winning team captain Leon Smith added: "We want to see more people playing.
"It's an important time to get strategies rolled out as soon as possible.
"We've got to get people on the court, but also keep them on the court, and that's down to good clubs and good coaches, keeping kids involved in it as long as possible.
"It's what Andy and Jamie's mum [Judy] has done so well. She gets so many people involved, but she can't keep doing it on her own. Let's hope it can have a positive influence."
Murray ends 2015 as the world number two and he hopes his victory on the international stage will stand him in good stead as he seeks to add to his two grand slam titles next year.
"Obviously, it's a big achievement to win an event like this," he added. "All of us understand this will be one of the best moments in our careers regardless of what anyone goes on to achieve after this.
"Hopefully we can all use it in a positive way to further our careers in the next few years.
"For me, playing in an atmosphere like that, it was so loud, there was a lot of booing and whistling, mentally it is good to go through matches like that and I hope I can use it to my advantage in the future."
