We urge customers to adhere to current physical distancing guidelines and to bring your own equipment.
We're also proud to offer tennis coaching programmes at the Meadows and Craiglockhart Tennis Centre.
Tennis coaching for juniors
Our junior tennis coaching programme at Edinburgh Leisure is recognised by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) as being second to none. See our classes, timetable, space availability and request to book a junior class.
Tennis coaching for adults
We have a fantastic choice of sessions for adults to develop skills through a combination of informal coaching and matchplay. We run these sessions at Craiglockhart Tennis Centre and the Meadows. Bookable online or on our app.
The days are getting shorter, but that shouldn't stop you getting out on the court. From October 1st, you can book floodlit tennis courts at the Meadows or Craiglockhart in the evenings. Floodlit sessions must be booked in advance - just click the button below or book via the mobile app for Android or iOS. The lights will be turned on for the duration of your session.
