Tennis Coaching at Newlands
Newlands is one of the most vibrant clubs in the west of Scotland and we welcome members of all ages and abilities.
There are lots of opportunities for social play but if you do want to play competitively we have 5 Ladies and 7 Gents tennis teams and Junior Teams in every age group of the West of Scotland leagues. Ladies, Gents and Juniors Teams strive to win their leagues each year and within the Club, we have annual Club Championships, regular social tournaments and box leagues suitable for all levels.
There are 7 well maintained outdoor courts, all of which are floodlit, 2 mini courts and we are the only southside club with 4 indoor courts. This means our members can play all year round, rain or shine, day or night.
