From Jimmy :

I hope you have all enjoyed the wonderful warm summer and had lots of fun on and off the tennis courts;-) I am going to start studying physiotherapy in September so there will be some small changes to the program. Matt Grieve and Lucas Watson (LTA Level 2 Coaches) will be providing assistance over the term. 

Unless otherwise stated, coaching class costs are as follows: £80 for the 16 week block (£5 per session) commencing on Monday 27 August to Friday 21 December (off for Half Term commencing Monday 15 October to Friday 19 October inclusive).

- 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 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.


- Development squads will run from Saturday 15 September to Saturday 15 December and costs are as follows: £65 for the 13 week block and payable in advance from week one session.
