Our tennis class develops fitness and strategy while teaching the finer elements of the sport.

We have access to six indoor and two outdoor clay courts, which comprise the Scottish Tennis Centre. These are the same courts where world champion, Andy Murray (currently ranked number 1 in the world) first learned to play.
