We’ve been coaching tennis at DLTC for decades.

As well as offering coaching programmes to our junior members, we  offer coaching suitable for beginners, improvers and intermediate players of all ages. We can also offer coaching tailored to team players looking to improve their doubles skills.

All coaching at DLTC is conducted by LTA Qualified and Certified Coaches, holding current Safeguarding, First Aid and PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certification, as well as up-to-date LTA Accreditation.


All our coaching sessions and camps are now open for 2024 – see below

1-to-1 or private small group Junior/Adult Coaching sessions can be arranged by contacting Grahame Forbes -

Please note: to be eligible for coaching you do not  have to be a member of DLTC – but non-members will pay more for group sessions.  Another good reason for joining DLTC – as if any were needed!

Contact us for more details, or keep an eye on our Facebook page.


Grahame has been a member at DLTC for 35yrs, and is an experienced LTA Qualified coach with a passion for coaching and an enthusiasm for all things tennis. He loves helping players improve their technical and match play ability,  as well as their overall enjoyment of the game.

I returned to tennis after a 20-year break, and started coaching sessions with Grahame. Two years on, I have improved so much, and my sessions are the highlight of my week. Highly recommend Grahame and the coaching team at DLTC.
