Our Annual Friendly with Falcon Tennis Club is on the 19th May. Your contact is Gavin Macdonald. 

FREE TEA....AND DELICIOUS CAKES... 

For the last few years Drummond have teamed up with the Falcon Tennis and
Bowling Club in Morningside for a Sunday social competition.

Falcon is one of the very few clay court clubs in Edinburgh other than us, but with
three courts to our two they are better placed to host, and we are delighted to
announce that this tradition will be continued into 2024.

This year's competition will take place on Sunday 19 th May. Participants should aim
to arrive at 1:15 - 1:30 for the draw (in past years we have paired Drummond men
with Falcon women, and vice versa, for mixed doubles - a formula which works
well).
The tennis itself will go from 2:00pm to roughly 5:00pm. The format will be a round
robin competition, first to ten points, with a tie-break if necessary to win by two,
followed by a knockout format to reach the final. Then from 5:00pm Falcon will
provide food, drink and prizes.

Please note this is social tennis. Your enthusiasm is valued above expertise!
We are looking for a team of twelve Drummondites - six men and six women to
compete. If interested, please put your name forward promptly as the event proved
very popular last year.
To enter please respond directly to Gavin on gavinjmac@me.com
£5 entry per person will cover costs and the remainder will go to charity.
Thank you!

Reminder       Wednesay Lunchtimne Social Tennis 2024 12-2pm.  Contact gavinjmac@me.com   to be added to the WhatsApp group or just turn up and join in

Tucked behind Scotland Street in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town

Our friendly club is both a haven and a hub of activity. We have two lovely blaes courts, a versatile smaller practice court and a dedicated table tennis area. Come on your own; come with family; come with friends. We offer courts for your own practice, times for social tennis, coaching for adults and children and the opportunity to play for one of the men’s or women’s teams in the East of Scotland Leagues.

In addition to all of this, a calendar of not-to-be-missed social events is announced each year.

Ask the members what makes Drummond special and they say... 
‘its diversity and inclusiveness ... the expertly tended blaes ... the morning sun striking the courts ... social tennis ... team tennis ... the children yelling 'Popcorn' as the fountain of red balls goes up ... the raspberries poking through the mesh fencing ... the coaching ... the characters ... the sense of community...'

Come along and have a look – new members always welcome!
