Net gains

If you’re new to tennis, lessons are a great idea.

We’ve been teaching the basics to young tennis players in Midlothian for decades. But we also know that you’re never too old to learn. So, as well as helping our junior members improve, we run beginner and improvement courses for adults. 

For 2019, we have a new partnership with Gordon Watson's Total Tennis, while Judy Murray’s Tennis on the Road team are regular visitors.

Coaching 2019

This year, coaching for junior and adult members is provided by Gordon Watson and his team from Total Tennis. Gordon is a Level 4 Performance Coach with many years of tennis experience, both as a player and as a coach. All coaches and coaching assistants in the team are LTA qualified and disclosure checked (PVG).
