With Wimbledon on its way, it is advantage Skelmorlie after a revamp of its tennis facilities.

The village tennis club has had an exciting year in which, as part of some lottery Funding, the club were able to progress with some major upgrade work making the courts playable with resurfacing, new poles and nets.

The clubhouse facility was updated with new toilets and general repairs. A lot of work is undertaken by members and support of the local community.

The club also offers coaching sessions. This has been a great success with involvement from the local primary school and is really taking off.

At the beginning of August, the club will offer a summer camp and during mornings the club will organise games on the courts with coach Neil Jones.

The dates of the summer camp are: 7, 9 and 11 of August, 9-10.30am P1-4, 10.30am-12 P5,6,7

Children from Largs are also welcome to join!

During July and August children (under 17) can play on our courts as a ‘guest' for £1.50 while playing with a member.
