Facilities

Situated in the picturesque seaside village of Gullane, the tennis club has a ‘character-filled’ traditional clubhouse situated adjacent to our three all-weather tennis courts. All of the tennis courts have floodlights (free for members' use) and there is also a practice wall. The clubhouse comprises a sitting area, kitchen, changing facilities and WCs.

Committee

The committee is responsible for the running of the club and is formed of members representing the club community. We are always looking to recruit new members to the committee, and in particular are currently seeking someone who is handy with IT and/or marketing. None of the roles is particularly onerous, either in time or workload, and committee membership is a great way to get to know others and become a valued member of the club. To discuss these roles in confidence - what they involve and what you might bring to them - please email membership@gullanetennis club.com, or contact one of the committee direct.
