Craiglockhart Festival of Tennis

Free Festival of Tennis at Craiglockhart

We're back in full swing with the reopening of our all-weather floodlit courts. To celebrate we'd like to invite you and your family to to our fun-filled Festival of Tennis on Saturday 22nd September 2-4pm.

Come and enjoy the entertainment from Scottish Stars of Tennis or book into our free taster sessions with Edinburgh Leisure's top coaches. If you're an experienced player, or if you've never picked up a racket before there's something for you being served up in our spectacular, free programme for adults and children alike.

The opening represents the culmination of a collaboration between Edinburgh Leisure, Tennis Scotland, and sportscotland to redevelop the outdoor courts at Craiglockhart. We have increased the number of outdoor courts from five to six and have installed a brand new all year-round playable surface with floodlights on five of the courts. This will enhance the area considerably and allow all year-round outdoor play.
