The Grange Club also arranges many Social events during the year – and Grange Go has a facebook page which provides details of upcoming events.
The AGM was held at 7pm on Thursday 6th October 2016 in the Longroom in the Club House. The Reports and the Minutes can be found on the Committee page.
Each year the Club runs a Club wide tournament comprising Men’s and Ladies Singles, Men’s and Ladies Doubles, Mixed Doubles and Over 50s tournaments for Men and Ladies. Shield competitions also take place for early round exits in the Singles and Mixed Doubles.
At the end of a month’s competitions all Finals are played on the last Saturday in August followed by presentations and supper in the Club House.
In 2017, the Championships will start from 17th July with Final’s Day on 26th August 2017.

Our fantastic grass courts (the only ones in Edinburgh) are open from the end of April to the beginning of September each year, weather permitting.
Many thanks to Kevin and Tom the groundsmen who do such an excellent job in keeping the courts in such great condition – and of course to Neil Ross our Grounds Convenor.
In 2017, the grass courts will open on Friday 21st April, followed by supper and our Wimbledon Ballot in the Club House and will close on Sunday 10th September.
Each year together with the Squash section we run a Grange Racketlon competition.
What is the Grange Racketlon? It’s a competition where you play 3 sports – Tennis, Squash and Table Tennis in a mini-league format – with prizes for winners at all levels. You don’t have to great at all 3 sports to enjoy the tournament – so why not give it a go – and maybe try out a new sport?
The 2017 event will take place on Saturday 9th September – so look out for emails and posters nearer the time.
We run 4 Men’s and 4 Ladies teams in the ESLTA Dunlop leagues – which run from the end of April to mid June each year, as well as entering the ESLTA Summer Social League and the Ladies Scottish Cup. So there is plenty of opportunity for those looking to play team tennis.
