Craighelen Lawn Tennis & Squash Club were recently recognised with the 'Club of the Year' award by West of Scotland Squash for 2021/22. This followed a season where the men's 1st and 2nd teams both won their respective divisions in the West Leagues.

The club tennis coach, Felix Carpenter, runs junior coaching sessions for all age groups. These include the LTA 'Youth Start' initiative for children between 4-11 years, who are new to tennis, with the emphasis on having fun. The coaching sessions have been designed to develop foundational skills that allow participation in tennis coaching, events, and beginners competitions.
Coaching for adult beginners at the club is also available.
Felix Carpenter can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about coaching sessions. See also the Coaching page.
