Welcome to Portlethen Tennis Club!

Portlethen Tennis Club is an informal, friendly club. Anyone is welcome to join - beginner or experienced player; junior or adult.

We play on the two tennis courts adjacent to the Bourtree Pavilion, close to the Green shopping centre at the south end of Portlethen.

Location map

Activities include tennis coaching, for both juniors and seniors, monthly social tournaments, league matches, club championships and open sessions where members can just turn up and play. The courts have floodlights, enabling us to play into the evenings, and an all weather surface, suited to our damp and unpredictable climate.

WHEN DO WE PLAY?

If you join the club you will receive a key to the courts and a personal membership card with details of the club playing times and activities.

For full details of what's on offer see the court timetable. Here's a summary.

For adults:

  • Mixed club sessions on Thursday evenings and Wednesday mornings
  • Ladies club session on Monday evenings
  • Gents club session on Sunday mornings
  • American Tournament on the first Sunday of the month
  • Adult coaching on Thursday evenings
  • Open session on Sundays from 1pm onwards

For juniors:

  • Junior coaching on Monday and Thursday afternoons
  • Open sessions (just turn up and play) weekdays, after school

Club sessions are the times when you can expect to find other members on court to play with.

Open sessions indicate times when the courts are reserved for Portlethen Tennis Club members. You should arrange your own playing partner(s) at these times.

On the first Sunday morning of each month, we hold an American Tournament. These are friendly events, open to all senior and student members, whatever their standard of play. To even things up, partnerships are picked out of a hat and halfway through each match couples swap partners so that each person plays half the games with their partner and the other half against him or her. It's great fun and a good opportunity to meet other members and have some entertaining games of tennis.

The courts are reserved for junior members, 4-6 pm, Mon - Fri. Outwith the coaching classes, junior members can simply turn up and play at these times.No booking is necessary but, when the courts are busy, they are expected to play fair and ensure no-one is left sitting on the sidelines for long.

COMPETITIONS and MONTHLY TOURNAMENTS

League matches

For those who enjoy competitive play, we have a ladies and a gents team in the Aberdeen and District Leagues. Matches are played on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and match practice sessions on Monday evenings for the ladies and Sunday mornings for the gents.

Club Championships

Throughout the summer we run a knockout tournament, culminating in the Club Finals Weekend at the beginning of September. While the singles can be quite serious, the doubles are more light-hearted - partnerships are chosen by a random draw, pairing weaker players with stronger ones. Entry details are on the membership form. Further details . . .

On the first Sunday morning of each month, we hold an American Tournament. These are friendly events, open to all senior and student members, whatever their standard of play. The scores in these tournaments also go towards the Alan Tait Trophy which is awarded at the end of the season to the player with the highest total score. Further details . . .
