Drumchapel Tennis Club


For over a hundred years Drumchapel Tennis Club, located at 90 Garscadden Road, Drumchapel, G15 6QQ, 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.

They have produced some fantastic talent from a base that is often associated with social problems and economic difficulty.

In continuing this great tradition and in order to remain at the centre of your community, the club 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 and support your local club.
