Dalkeith Tennis Club

This year Dalkeith Tennis celebrates 130 years of tennis being played at the club on Cemetery Road. When it opened in 1888 Queen Victoria was on the throne and would be for another 13 years.

To mark the occasion, they are hosting a Doors Open Day to encourage the the community to try tennis for free.

Clare Smith-O’Donnell, DLTC President said:

“On Saturday 8th September we are opening our doors to the community to come and celebrate our birthday with us. Whether you’re a beginner or a lapsed player, or just want to see what’s behind our gate on Cemetery Road, drop by from 10.30 for a cuppa and some cake. We’ve got garden games and an exhibition match – there’s something for everyone to enjoy even if playing tennis isn’t your thing.

“We want to open the sport up to as many people as possible so they can enjoy some exercise, the outdoors, make new friends and ensure the club thrives for another 130 years. We’re looking forward to meeting new and old friends.”
