Merchiston Tennis Club

Welcome to Merchiston Tennis Club

We have around 300 members including a thriving junior section. We put out 4 men's teams and 2 ladies' teams each year in the Dunlop East of Scotland leagues along with vets teams, winter league teams and take part in various other local and national competitions.  Last year we had 9 junior teams (boys, girls and younger mixed) in the Aegon league.  We also have a very healthy and active non-team, fun and sociable cohort of members!

The tennis club has a 'Standard Life' section comprising members from a local major employer.
