Coaching and Juniors


High quality and fun group and individual tennis coaching at Aboyne Tennis Club is provided through GM coaching.

Head Coach Grant McMurtrie has a long term connection with the club, coming through the Aboyne juniors programme,  before several years away gaining some fantastic international coaching experience in Rhodes and Melbourne.  He returned to Scotland in spring 2024 to set up and run GM Coaching , which currently offers a  junior coaching term time programme and holiday camps, as well as private coaching for all ages, using the club's courts.

Contact Grant direct if you want to know more or discuss anything.


We have a very vibrant and busy Junior Section here at Aboyne Tennis Club offering fun Tennis Activities and Coaching for all ages and abilities. Junior coaching sessions are currently running on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and can be booked here  Players must be club members to access the coaching programme.

Youth Club Night

We run a term time Club Youth Night on Thursdays from 6.30pm - 8.00pm. This is a fun turn up and play session, which is facilitated by our Junior Coaching Team, with a parent volunteer onsite.

With the help of club member Sam McNulty we have been able to secure funds from Aberdeenshire Clubsport to support this. This mean we are able to continue running the Thursday night youth sessions throughout 2024 free for all Junior Members aged 12+years, with non member guests welcome at a cost of £5 per session.

We have established a WhatsApp group to administer these sessions. If you would like to get added to this group please text our junior coordinator (Trish Atkinson 07929 419721) or  (Tammie Sebire 07714 135519). This team chat can also be used to arrange to play with other juniors.
