Meadows Tennis on Twitter

The Meadows City Tennis Club is a friendly LTA-registered members' club based at the Meadow public courts offering social and competitive tennis for adults and juniorsThe club was established in 2003 as part of the LTA's City Tennis Club scheme and in 2013 we celebrated our 10th anniversary. The club is run by a committee of volunteers and is supported by Edinburgh Leisure.

2014 was an exciting year for the club with the installation of flood-lighting on courts 1-6 and the refurbishment of the Meadows tennis pavillion which now has changing rooms and a cafe. Big thanks are due to the LTA, SportScotland and Edinburgh Leisure for their investment in the facility.

The club organises an extensive social tennis programme and enters five men's and ladies' doubles teams, and several junior teams, in East of Scotland leagues. We also hold a series of annual club competitions and singles ladders (social events too!), and have weekly indoor sessions at Craiglockhart Tennis Centre during the winter.

We play on the public courts at the eastern end of the Meadows where there are 16 courts. In summer you will find us on courts 9-11; in winter club sessions are on courts 6-8

New players are always welcome! Try out the club before joining by coming along to one of our social tennis sessions, detailed below, at which we mainly play doubles.
