Welcome to Rutherglen LTC

Rutherglen Lawn Tennis Club

A friendly, welcoming place to enjoy tennis whatever your age, level or ambition.

Located just 3 miles south east of Glasgow City Centre and benefitting from excellent public transport links, we are one of the most active and progressive Tennis Clubs in Scotland. We have 7 all-weather courts which are floodlit for year-round play. These are split across two nearby venues. We have four Artificial Grass courts located off Viewpark Drive, our home for very nearly 100 years, and 3 new Artificial Clay courts located off Burnside Road, which formerly operated as Burnside Tennis Club until they became derelict. We saved and expanded into these courts in Summer 2017 to give us the extra space we so badly needed given our rapid growth and expansion. Both venues are fully accessible.

We are big enough to offer great facilities and lots of tennis and social opportunities for everyone, but small enough to be run by members for members and retain the friendly, welcoming environment we pride ourselves on.

We offer loads of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the wonderful game of tennis any day of the week, any day of the year, whether this is:

  • Informally, with friends and family with members having free access to 7 fantastic floodlit, all-weather courts.
  • Socially, with like-minded members through various weekly social play sessions and numerous special events throughout the year.
  • Competitively, as a member of one of our many teams that play at all levels in the West of Scotland Leagues, various Regional and National Competitions, as well as our Club Championships which take place in autumn.
  • As part of our Coaching Programme, led by the British Tennis Coach of the Year for 2016, Jonny Willcox, helping kids and grown-ups achieve their tennis ambitions.

Our commitment to provide a vibrant, high quality, affordable and welcoming club was recognised by Tennis Scotland, who awarded us the accolade of “Club of the Year” for both 2016 and 2017.

But it’s not just about tennis. We have a very active off-court social scene too, with our now-legendary Quiz Night, Grand Slam-themed tournaments, end-of-season Awards Night and many other events over the course of the year. Our adult members have access to the bar at Burnside Bowling Club offering a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at a low cost and in a pleasant setting.

Membership of RLTC affords you access to either venue anytime. There is no joining fee and membership can be paid in monthly instalments. The use of floodlights is absolutely free, with the only additional costs being coaching classes and some organised club events.

We're curently working hard to try and buid some covered tennis couts in Overtoun Park as part of a vibrant community hub offering facilities and opportunities for everyone to enjoy. Our members are going to incredible efforts to raise funds for this project including cycling from Rutherglen To Wimbledon and canoeing from Glasgow to Edinburgh.

We're also getting very excited about our big centenary year next year and have lots of things planned to celebrate this big milestone. Watch this space....


We are a voluntary organisation - run by members, for members. Whilst this ethos will always be at the heart of everything we do, we have now reached a size and scale of operation where we need administrative support to continue to provide the high quality experience our members expect and continue to deliver lots of opportunities to enhance the communities we serve. We also have bold ambitions to grow and develop even further and we see this administrative support as being a fundamental ingredient of this future success.

We are looking for a friendly, positive, confident and enthusiastic individual to work under the direction of our committee, coaching team and wider volunteers to help the club meet its short, medium and long term objectives.
