DOE have started on the first phase of exciting plans to revamp Aberdeen Tennis Centre. Previously known as Westburn Tennis Centre the site includes indoor and outdoor courts as well as grass tennis courts.

The first phase of work starts April 11th and will see the old bitmac tennis courts reconfigured by DOE into 4 new painted porous macadam courts with full run-off areas and LED floodlights.
Future plans could include the addition of padel courts and an extension to the indoor hall.

On Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June 2018, Brodies LLP and Gleneagles Hotel will again host Scotland’s must-see tennis event of the summer, with legends of the sport descending on Auchterarder to compete for the title of Brodies Tennis Invitational Champion.

The tournament will be played in the fantastic indoor venue with DOE acrylic courts giving a high performance surface for some top quality tennis.

DOE Sport North have offered their support for the fast growing sport of padel with the launch of a new padel league for club teams. The league is aimed at tennis and squash players to give them the opportunity to try padel at one of Scotland’s best facilities, Thistle Padel and Tennis Club.

Padel is described as tennis with walls or squash over a net and is proving a great success across Europe. DOE, working with Padel Tech the UK’s leading padel court company, carried out specialist groundworks and courts at Thistle in Edinburgh which will now see tennis clubs trying padel matches this Spring.

With the support of East of Scotland LTA and Tennis Borders tennis players will swap their strings for padel bats.

  

The organisers, Padel Scotland, thanked DOE Sport North for their support which will provide new match balls throughout the season and allow each team to have a free trial session to learn the rules and translate their tennis skills to padel.
