Falcon Bowling and Tennis Club


Falcon Club has three beautiful red-clay tennis courts. This traditional surface, called blaes in Scotland, is the surface of choice in Europe, yet the chance to play on red blaes is rare in Edinburgh. Our courts are surfaced with a mix of specially imported Italian brick dust which gives them their distinctive terracotta colour. They are scarified, re-laid and rolled every year in February/March, in advance of the season. All three courts are bookable FREE online; members receive usernames and passwords with their membership confirmation.


Social Tennis
Members meet for social tennis on a turn-up-and-play basis three times a week throughout the season:
Tuesdays 6 - 8 p.m.
Fridays 9 - 11 a.m.
Sundays 2 - 4 p.m.
These are mixed, social tennis sessions for all Falcon Adult and Intermediate Members age 16+. Everyone is welcome to join in and all abilities are welcome.

Winter Tennis
While the club has to close its blaes courts during the winter due to frost softening the clay, social tennis continues at the Meadows Tennis Courts. The club social tennis players continue under floodlights once a week.

Tennis Ladder
The Falcon Club Tennis Ladder Competition runs all season from Open Day in April to early October. This is a mixed competition for men and women. Any Falcon Member age 18 or over may apply and take part. Individuals arrange challenge matches by email or text. The Falcon Tennis Ladder welcomes new participants
