Coaching at DLTC

We’ve been coaching tennis at DLTC for decades. And you’re never too old to learn or want to improve.

At DLTC, as well as offering coaching programmes to our junior members, we can 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.



Due to current Covid-19 guidelines , coaching is currently only available on a limited 1-1 basis.

Please contact Grahame Forbes  ([email protected]) directly  to arrange a session.

Tennis for Kids is a starter course for kids, comprising of 6 high quality sessions, that introduce tennis to children in a fun and relaxed Club environment. Sessions are for age 4-7 year olds & 8-11 year olds, and we hope to run some later in the year.

These have been successfully run in recent years by Mike Robson, also a Level 4 Performance Coach with many years of tennis experience. Mike has been an active member at DLTC for some years.
