Membership & booking
We have a number of membership types available, with individual, couple, and family options. Membership at Abercorn includes a variety of benefits, including the ability to book courts online up to a week in advance with no additional court fees, a discounted rate on group classes, access to our clubhouse with locker rooms and members lounge, and invitations to social events both on and off the court – check out the Join Now page for the full list! Non-members are also able to book Court 4 on a pay-to-play basis during specific times through the LTA Rally Program.
Please note that as a small, volunteer-run community club, we don’t have a reception desk or staff that are always on site (although the clubhouse is accessible to members at all times). If you’re interested in checking out our club’s facilities before joining, or you aren’t a member but are looking to pick up an item in our Lost & Found and want to make sure someone is around, please email email@example.com and we’ll organise a convenient time.
Coaching and kids holiday camps
Whether you’re a complete beginner, you’re returning to the game and feel a bit rusty, or you just want to hone your skills further, our tennis and squash club coaches offer a range of lessons and classes, both individual and group, as well as holiday camps for junior players. You don’t have to be a club member to take advantage of our coaching program or enroll in classes (but members do get a discount on classes).
Social tennis and squash
We offer regular social tennis and squash sessions for members to get out on the court for some extra practice and to enjoy playing friendly games with other members. Social tennis takes place every Wednesday from 6-8 pm and Saturday from 2-4 pm, and social squash is on Sundays at 7 pm. All members are welcome!
Club competitions & friendly events
As a community-focused club, we periodically host fun events and occasions for members to socialize and have fun both on and off the court. Join us for an afternoon of American Doubles tennis, a squash open house, or even a quiz night!
Competitive league tennis
Membership gives players access to competitive tournament matches in the East of Scotland Leagues for both tennis and squash, where Abercorn fields ladies and mens teams in both sports.

If you’re curious about our offerings but aren’t ready to join, or if you have friends or family who would like to check out the club, consider joining us for one of our open days. At these events non-members can pick up a racket and give tennis and/or squash a try, with both free play and mini coaching sessions available for all ages. Our annual open day usually takes place in March with smaller open houses throughout the year. Keep an eye on our social media for the next ones!
Abercorn Sports Club is located in the leafy Willowbrae area of Edinburgh to the east of the city centre. We’re easy to access with unmetered street parking outside the club and we’re a 10 minute or less walk from convenient bus routes (Lothian Bus routes 4, 5, 26, 44, and 45 and East Coast routes 124, 113, X6, and X7).
Try tennis for free this summer at an LTA Big Tennis Weekends event! Rackets and balls will be provided, so whether you’ve never picked up a racket before or you’re a seasoned regular – there is fun to be had.
