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 earlier this 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.
