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

We play on the public courts at the East end of the Meadows which is a fantastic and beautiful location. The club rents its court time from Edinburgh Leisure who run the courts. 

The club is run by a committee of volunteers and is supported by Edinburgh Leisure. We offer competitive membership rates.

The club organises an extensive social tennis programme and enters men's and women's doubles teams and junior teams in East of Scotland leagues. We also hold a series of annual club competitions and singles ladders (social events too!).

In 2014 flood-lighting was installed on courts 1-6 and the Meadows tennis pavillion/cafe was refurbished. Big thanks are due to the LTA, SportScotland and Edinburgh Leisure for their investment in the facility.

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.
(Note - With limited court space and time the adult club is aimed at players of very approximately intermediate level ie able to join in social doubles matches at club sessions. 

For beginners/post-beginners, Edinburgh Leisure offers coaching based at the Meadows courts and other venues: http://www.edinburghleisure.co.uk/venues/meadows-tennis or phone 0131 443 0101.
Booking a court (Apr-Oct) ie outwith club sessions (or for non-members) - speak to the attendant or phone 07766 774529; at other times of year the courts are free.

  • End of the 2016 season
    The club season went out with a bang with a final doubles tournament in late October sunshine - we filled 7 courts and used our usual rotating format to mean everyone gets to play with everyone (in theory). 

    The following Thursday was the club's big end of season night out - thanks to Andi for organising and taking us to the very pleasant Hewatts's restaurant on Causewayside and the Cask and Barrell afterwards. As always engraved club trophies were presented - we pretty much took up the whole restaurant but the one other table of 4 were very understanding of the short 5 minute speech/disturbance to their dining!

    As Xmas approached Andi revived her new idea of a December Miulled wine event in the club house following on from a club social session.

  • Club Women's and Men's Singles tournaments
    Saturday 3 August saw our annual women's and men's singles tournamnet - thanks to everyone who played and helped in great weather and for once going against the forecast for rain. Unlike most club we run our club championships as a round robin event on a single day meaning everyone gets to play a good bit of tennis against a variety of opponents and makes it a sociable event too!

    This year saw a new women's winner - Emily Tupper who was one of the club's earliest junior members - defeating the 2013 winner Andi Hermann in the final.

    The men's trophy was taken this year by Clive Minshull who has won on two previous occasions (2011 and 2014). Jackson Pauls, who went out to Clive in the semi this year,remains the club member to have won the most times (5 in all!)

    Doubles tournaments next weekend!

    Clive and Emily - Singles Champions 2016. Well Done! :)                                           Clive and Emily with finalists Kevin and Andi!
