Providing a welcoming, friendly place to enjoy tennis whatever your age, level or ambitions

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 nearly 100 years, and 3 brand new Artificial Clay courts located off Burnside Road, which formerly operated as a 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 club 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 annual Club Championships, or;
  • As part of our Coaching Programme led by Tennis Scotland’s Coach of the Year 2016, Jonny Willcox, giving kids and grown-ups the opportunity to fulfil their tennis ambitions whatever they may be.

Our commitment to provide a vibrant, high quality, affordable and welcoming club was recognised recently by Tennis Scotland, who awarded us the accolade of “Club of the Year 2016” and then again in 2017. We are incredibly proud to have been the first club to win this award for two consecutive years.

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 very 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.
