Meadows Tennis on Twitter

The Meadows City Tennis Club is a friendly LTA-registered 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 we celebrated our 10th anniversary last year! 

We organise an extensive social tennis programme and enter 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. Our winter 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.

  • First club tournament of the year
    Saturday 7th June saw the club's first social tournament of they year coinciding with the women's final at Roland Garros (we caught the final set at the Greenmantle pub afterwards after heavy rain (again) interfered with the tournament. However everyone seems to enjoy the social aspect of the rotating aspect of our "American Doubles"  tournament format meaning everyone gets to play with numerous different partners and we hope to run the event again later in the year!

    Thanks to everyone who entered!

    One of several rain breaks during the tournament!                              At Greenmantle pub after tournamnent - drying off ...!

    Sad that Shriram has moved away - thanks for supporting all our events and being a great member ... gravitating from hardly having played tennis to playing in our Men's 3 East of Scotland team in a few years with the club.
