We’re hugely proud of the prominent role we play within the local community

Our Open Weekends, Fun Days etc. give people regular opportunities to play tennis for FREE.

We regularly let community groups and local organisations use our Viewpark Clubhouse, including Burnside Community Council.

Here are some of our favourite other examples

WHEELCHAIR TENNIS

With the help of GB Paralympian, Kevin Simpson, we launched a new Wheelchair Tennis Class at our Open Weekend in March 2016 and this is proving very successful.

This is allowing players from all walks of life to enjoy tennis regardless of disability. With support from the Tennis Foundation we are able to subsidise new specially adapted wheelchairs for players, which has been a massive help.

GREAT PARTNERSHIPS

Our partnership with Fuse Youth Café offers children the opportunity to play tennis at a local club and upskills their workforce allowing them to deliver tennis sessions year-round.

This partnership was nominated for the “Most Innovative Physical Activity Programme” prize at the 2016 Scottish Sports Futures Awards.
