Balerno Lawn Tennis Club, located in the heart of the village of Balerno on the outskirts of Edinburgh, is open all year and offers two all-weather courts.  Our membership year runs from April to March and we are always happy to welcome new members and host community events and tournaments.

The club is committed to offering excellent, accessible tennis facilities and coaching to all ages in the community all year round. As well as being used by our growing membership we have thriving junior coaching sessions open to non-members and our courts are used by other local organisations such as the Scouts, local schools and nursery groups. The club supports the Balerno Children’s Gala each year with a community tennis tournament and gets involved in other community initiatives.


We are looking forward to the 2019/20 season! We have lots of exciting activities proposed including a fun doubles family tournament, beginners and improvers adult coaching and junior coaching.  Our coach Bruce Beadle is a very enthusiastic and motivated coach with a particular strength with junior and adult beginners and improvers, his belief is in keeping tennis simple and fun!  Bruce will be running junior and adult coaching programmes for the club. The junior coaching runs on Friday afternoons and we have a new drop-in class on Sunday afternoons. Adult coaching is available on weekdays and Sunday afternoons (on demand). Tennis camps run during the school holidays.  We also have a junior club night on Friday evenings. 


We have taken on the old tennis pavilion next to the courts and are in the process of raising funds and renovating the building to provide a clubhouse for our members and for the community. We are always looking for volunteers to help with this, please email us at 

info@balernotennisclub.com if you can help in any way.

Memberhip details and the memberhip forms can be downloaded from the membership page.  For further information about the club, membership or coaching please contact us at info@balernotennisclub.com.
