The club is committed to getting more local children and families involved in the sport and extends a very warm welcome to everyone to come along and see what we have to offer. We want to show that tennis can be great value, great exercise and great fun for the family.

 

The club's junior coaching goes from strength to strength. Up to 50 children attend the Saturday sessions on a regular basis.

May 2018

 

The Gents recently competed in the Junior Calcutta Cup but were unlucky to have to concede the tie as a result of any injury to one of their players, Andy Bone.

In league tennis, they got off to a steady start away to Helensburgh. Although they lost 4-5, this was a positive result for the team which was much depleted due to family and other commitments.

 

The Ladies team have had mixed fortunes starting with a 3-6 away defeat at Stepps. However they turned things around in their second match, comfortably beating Ft Matilda 6-3 in their first home match since the new club house was built.

 

Details of all spring/summer match fixtures are available in the club and will be updated on the website as required
