Welcome to Merchiston Tennis Club, Edinburgh. We are a local friendly club, and we share the facilities with Merchiston Bowling Club - the combined club (Merchiston Tennis & Bowling Club) runs a busy Clubhouse with Bar, Large-screen TV and changing rooms/toilets/showers etc.
We have just finished rejuvenating the courts - replacing the 100 year old blaes with 3 all weather artificial grass courts, two with floodlights. All members welcome. The Clubhouse is open year-round (though open less in the winter).
The club has a 'Standard Life' section comprising members from that local major employer, and they can use the courts as a normal member.
The Club is aiming to attract more members, especially family members with children, to build on its coaching and other attractions. We are very hands-on with participation from members and their families crucial to helping events, especially social ones, being a success. Membership is open for applications.
Please note there is a completely separate Merchiston Castle tennis club in south-west Edinburgh and we are not connected with them (apart from both being in the ESLTA). The 'Tennis Academy' is based at Merchiston Castle tennis club, not here.
