Smashing egg-travaganza at Craiglockhart Tennis Centre

Posted: 8th April 2019

Edinburgh Leisure’s Craiglockhart Tennis Centre is hosting an egg-travaganza Festival of Tennis on Easter Sunday on 21st April from 2-4pm, with something for all the family.

Open to members and non-members, there will be an opportunity to get a taste of the programmes and courses on offer at Edinburgh’s flagship tennis facility, have the opportunity to pick up a racket and have some fun and potentially, witness a Guinness World Record being smashed.

Scotland’s leading racket experts and retailers, Gannon Sports, who have an outlet at Craiglockhart, will be attempting a record of the fastest stringing of a tennis racket. The team at Gannon Sports have been practising hard to shave off as much time off the 15-minute benchmark.

Craiglockhart Tennis Centre offers junior tennis classes from as young as 18 months, up to adults of all abilities. Craiglockhart Tennis Centre has six indoor courts and a further six outdoor clay courts (five with floodlights for evening play), and a cycling studio.   Its Leisure Centre also boasts a spacious gym with over 70 pieces of kit, fitness studios, squash courts and a multipurpose sports hall.

The outdoor tennis courts at Craiglockhart have seen many world-famous players grace their surface over the years from Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe in the 1970s to Andy Murray in the 90s.
