Here at Forres Tennis Club we’re committed to making the sport of tennis more accessible to the local community, particularly the younger generation.
We are always keen to have new adult members and players, so if you would like to come along to meet people and play some tennis come along to a club session on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning to find out more! For anyone just starting out or who have not played for a while and want to dust off that racquet we also have a new Rusty Racquets session on Fridays from 9am. Open to members and non-members (£3 per session) this is a great way to get to know the club and members whilst developing your game at a fun and friendly session.
For juniors we have regular coaching on a Tuesday afternoon and evening. Get in touch via email@example.com for more information.

Matthew selected for Highland Squad
Our very own Matthew Douglas was selected to play as part of the Highland Squad at the Inter-district tennis played recently over 4 days at Kilgraston, Perth. Well done to all the juniors selected from the clubs around Highland to represent the district.
Forres Juniors take the Double!
Forres Juniors triumph in the Highland Tennis League and take the 16 & under title alongside the 14 & under title they won in the summer.
Pictured are Team members Matthew Douglas, Charlie McCann and Duncan Hornsby receiving the league winner’s trophy from Tennis Scotland’s Chief Executive Officer David Marshall last Monday.
This is a great achievement for the squad of players and the club. Four of the players in the 16 & under squad were also part of the 14 & under squad before the summer, who managed for the first time in years to beat rivals Inverness to the league title. It has been a fantastic year for Forres Tennis Club with the 12 & under team also coming runners up in their division and Matthew Douglas also being awarded Player of the 14& under League. The Junior team squads commitment to turning out for coaching sessions and the matches has been outstanding and they are worthy winners of both the league titles.
Annual Open Day a great success!
Saturday saw over 35 primary school aged children attend the free taster sessions with Club coach Alan Lane. Under sunny skies they had great fun playing games and playing tennis. This was followed by sessions for secondary school age children and adult which both had fantastic turnouts where they honed their skills and learnt some new techniques on the court.
This was followed by a fun American style tournament for members and their families which saw the courts buzzing all afternoon. Such a fantastic day!
