Welcome to Lomond Park Tennis Club
A very warm welcome to you all.
We have a full schedule arranged for the year with plenty of social events and hopefully 2015 will be another enjoyable and exciting year. I do hope that you will manage along to some of our social events and enjoy your tennis at Lomond Park.
We have another full programme this year. There are 4 Men's teams, 4 Ladies' teams and 7 junior teams entered in the leagues. Men's practice nights take place every Monday night from 6.30pm and Ladies' practice nights take place every Tuesday from 6.30 pm. All welcome.
We are always looking for fresh and new talent so if you are interested in playing for any of the teams, please contact the team captains or come along to any of the practice nights. You will be most welcome.
More information can be found in the Adult and Junior sections of the website.
Our coach is Stuart Brown. He is a fully licensed UKCC Level 3 Tennis Coach and will continue to run a variety of programmes for the club. He is also available for private group and individual lessons.
Stuart works part time as Tennis Development Officer and Positive Coaching Scotland Lead Officer for East Lothian Council and also does some coaching at Craiglockhart. Unfortunately he is unable to play for our Men’s 1st team as he is currently Men’s 1st Team Captain at Barnton Park LTC.

The LTA have changed the system for the WImbledon Ballot this year. Previously the allocation of tickets to each club was dependent on the number of British tennis Members (BTM) registered in that club - hence the reason we ask you to become a British Tennis Member.
However, from this year, the club's allocation of tickets will be based on the number of BTMs who have OPTED IN to the Wimbledon Ballot. This means that unless our BTMs opt in to the ballot, the number of tickets allocated to us will be drastically reduced.
Hopefully you have opted in to the ballot by now. You cannot enter our ballot unless you have done so.
This is in the process of being updated.
You will receive an email at the end of every month with news and reminders of forthcoming events in the following month.
This year the Hart Cup is being sponsored by Taylor Physiotherapy, 10 Comely Bank Avenue, Edinburgh EH4 1EL, 332 8698. They are offering our members a 10% discount on physiotherapy treatments. When making an appointment, inform them that you are a Lomond Park member to receive your discount.
Please also check the website and noticeboards as these will be updated regularly.
If you are able to help with any of the events please contact any of the committee members. Your help will be gratefully received whether it be baking, barbecuing or helping out with the ‘First Friday’ social evenings.
You will be receiving an email shortly from the Secretary about the payment of the annual subscriptions. If you pay before the end of March you will not have to pay the late fee (£30 for adults, £10 for juniors).
There are 2 methods of paying – bank transfer (BACs) and PayPal.
We are encouraging everyone to pay by bank transfer (BACs), either online or pop in to your branch. Please remember to quote as a reference for your payment, your family surname, number of members and your postcode (eg Smithx4EH53LX). This reference allows us to match up your application with payment.
This is the preferred method of payment.
I hope we all have an enjoyable year of tennis and if you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch.
