No more than 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 then 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 problems 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 looking for funding to upgrade Court 4 that will hopefully mean tennis will be accessible in Drumchapel for at least another century. But, we need more members so ....C'mon support your local Club.
Since 2012 the club has been an active partner with Glasgow Life and The Tennis Foundation through the "Community Tennis Programme" delivering playing opportunities and coaching to non members within the Drumchapel and Knightswood Park facilities. The programme which started in 2012 runs throughout the year and coaching and playing at these facilities offers a pathway into the club activities and is aimed at retaining on-going participation.
We've also teamed up with the Tennis For Free charity to bring FREE weekly coach led tennis sessions to all of the community (from 12th October) from 1:30pm-3:30pm each week. It's designed for all of the family to come down and enjoy some tennis. Visit the Tennis For Free page for more detail. To take part in this session, you need to register an account on this website and then 'Book' in (make sure you book in all members of your family attending) on the relevant session on our 'What's On' Calendar (or use the 'Book Next Tennis For Free' countdown feature opposite to take you to the next TFF session on the calendar).
