The Meadows City Tennis Club is a friendly, LTA (Lawn Tennis Association)-affiliated club, established in 2002, offering social/competitive tennis for adults, and a dedicated juniors club.
The club is quite unusual in that it is based play on public courts, located at the eastern end of the Meadows, close to Edinburgh University buildings and Buccleuch Street. It was founded as part of the LTA’s city tennis scheme which set out to establish club tennis on public courts. The club won the LTA’s Club of the Year award in 2003
There are 16 courts – all re-surfaced in 2007 – the club generally has 3 courts for club sessions (see the website for full details of times etc).
Annual membership fees are a very reasonable £55 for adults; £45 for students; and £25 for kids – with early bird discounts.
New players of basic club standard upwards are always welcome. Try out the club before joining by coming along to one of our social tennis sessions, detailed on the website and also as explained below.
