CLUB OF THE YEAR 2013
We are proud to be the recipients of this year’s Glasgow Life club of the year award. It was an honour to collect the award on behalf of all our members. Well deserved!
Welcome to The Drum! Right in the heart of Drumchapel, we’d like to think this is a club for everyone. Drumchapel Tennis Club is a great place to learn a sport, get fit and have fun. You can find out more about the club here and how to join in. We’ve got coaching, team and social events with matches for kids and skills of all ages. If you would like to know more or would like to become a member please get in touch via phone or email, or pop in to the clubhouse.
For over a hundred years this tennis club has been a local landmark in Drumchapel. Generations of kids from the surrounding areas of Drumchapel, Knightswood and Clydebank have learned to play tennis for pleasure and as part of a team.We have produced some fantastic talent from a base that is often associated with social challenges and economic difficulty.We want to continue this great tradition and keep a club you can be proud of at the centre of your community. We are currently seeking funding to upgrade our final court, number four. It’s part of our plan to keep accessible tennis in Drumchapel for at least another century. But, we need more members so ....c'mon support your local club!.
Since 2012 we’ve been in active partnership with Glasgow Life and The Tennis Foundation. Through the Community Tennis Programme we are bringing tennis out to the wider community, linked in to the great new facilities at Drumchapel and Knightswood Park facilities. The programme runs throughout the year and offers a great chance to learn how to progress in the sport and keep young people involved in the game.We’re also teaming up with the charity Tennis For Free to bring you FREE weekly coaching-led tennis sessions every Saturday at Drumchapel Park 1:30pm-3:30pm each week. (see map)To take part, you will need to register for an account on this website and then 'book' in ALL family members wishing to attend the selected session on our 'What's On' Calendar - or use the 'Book Next Tennis For Free' countdown feature opposite.
