The Meadows Tennis has 16 top quality outdoor courts to play on in the heart of the city. You don’t need to be a member of any club -  anyone can-book (courts have to be pre-booked and paid for) and enjoy one of the best tennis experiences in Edinburgh.

If you arrive and haven’t booked, please go to Café Refresh in the pavilion (through the large play park at the East Meadows) where you can check availability, book and pay for your court. Café Refresh also has a range of food and drinks available for purchase.

We're also proud to offer tennis coaching programmes at the Meadows and Craiglockhart Tennis Centre.

Please read our Booking Terms & Conditions before booking. Any problems see our step by step guide to booking classes.

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.
