From Jimmy :

Summer term is here again...hooray it's been quite a long winter;-) Well The French Open and Wimbledon are now just around the corner so lets get out there and show those professionals what we can do....maybe;-) 


Please see the Summer Term Coaching Programme below and unless otherwise stated, coaching class costs are as follows: £50 for the 10 week block (£5 per session) commencing on Monday 22 April to Friday 28 June:


- All attendees MUST BE MEMBERS of the club. 

- Please BOOK via Merchiston LTC Clubspark –

- All players should attend the same group as the previous block unless indicated otherwise.

- Classes will not run with less than 4 players.

- Classes will only be cancelled if the courts are unplayable. If coaching is cancelled due to bad weather I will offer one refund. In the event of further cancellations I will offer an alternative equivalent class on another day.

- To ease administration and allocate coaching resources, it will not be possible to pay and play for junior coaching sessions with the exception of the girls and boys match play which is still £2 pay and play. 

- Pay and play is still available for adult coaching sessions (£7 per session).


- I also offer Individual/Group lessons for £25 per hour
