Presidents Welcome 2024

Welcome! If you have managed to play any tennis so far this year I salute you. However spring is on the way and the 2024-25 tennis season is fast approaching. A reminder that Membership Fees are due to be paid by 1st April. We have a range of membership packages to suit all ages, abilities & availability. We would encourage as many of you to enjoy the benefits of a full membership, allowing access to evening coaching, regular weekend mixed social tennis sessions, interclub social tennis events, our own internal club tournaments and of the course the club championships. The restricted Associate membership remains an excellent 5 day offer, allowing access to all facilities on weekdays- Monday to Friday up till 4pm, but we need to ensure the club is sustainable, with an appropriate number of full members, not least to ensure we can field teams to play in the Tennis Ayrshire Leagues. 


Please see the website  for membership categories and how to join and a reminder email will also be issued with joining instructions.


The committee secured agreement at the AGM to increase annual membership fees as follows: generally a 7.5% increase rounded up to the nearest £1/ £5 and with a greater % increase for the Associate category, equating to 60% of a full Senior Membership Fee. At under £5 per week for a full Senior Member and under £3 per week for an Associate, this still represents excellent value for money.


League Tennis

We have entered a number of teams in this year's Ayrshire Doubles Leagues: 3 x ladies, 3 x gents, 1 x mixed knockout & 1 x mixed "Masters" teams. All we need now are the players! Please consider this a call to arms and we would encourage all potential team players to come out of hibernation and begin limbering up for the new league season which commences w/c 15th April.


If you are keen to play in the leagues please get in touch via 


Court Maintenance

We need to look after our wonderful facilities. The professional team have now carried out a pre-season maintenance regime on all courts, involving moss treatment followed by a deep clean. However the courts require to be brushed on a regular on-going basis to maximise lifespan. It only takes 5 mins to brush a court and we would encourage you to do so after play. Brushes are available on the front and back courts.


Sinking Fund & Fund Raising

Our club offers a top-class facility, however, maintaining 6 courts, 3 sets of floodlights and a clubhouse is expensive. As outlined at the AGM our current focus is to ensure we can cover the cost of front court replacement which may be necessary in 3 or 4 years. We have now set up a sinking fund at the bank, ring fenced to cover ongoing court maintenance and refurbishment plans on a 5-10 year rolling basis. By the end of this season, with another concerted effort of financial management & fundraising, we should be halfway towards meeting the cost of front court replacement.


Over the coming months we will be running a series of fund raising events similar to last year’s programme. Look out for notification emails and check out the Events page on the website for more information. We have already held a quiz night fundraiser this month. Thanks to all those who attended and a huge thank you to Lyndsay Christie & Murray Wilson for hosting the evening. Future events will include some family fun activities and a sponsored challenge. We hope to count on the full support of all members.


If you would be interested in helping with any of this, please get in touch via 


Open Day Sun 28th April

Our next planned event will be the Open Day to be held on Sunday 28th April. All in the community are invited to come and see what we have to offer. Our coaching team will be on hand and we would encourage all members to support the event- a great opportunity to meet new people, make our guests feel welcome and play with potential new members. Catering & refreshments will be provided all day, along with an afternoon BBQ, raffle & other fun fundraising activities. Last year was well attended, attracted some new members and raised some funds for the club. Donations of home baking would be appreciated!
