The £4.5m Oriam Indoor Tennis Centre has opened its doors at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

The new centre, which is set to become a major asset for the future of tennis in Scotland, has been funded in partnership between Oriam, Heriot-Watt University, the LTA, LTA Tennis Foundation, sportscotland and Tennis Scotland through the Transforming Scottish Indoor Tennis (TSIT) fund.

Work began on the Indoor Tennis Centre (ITC) in September 2022 and a soft opening was completed in December 2023.

There have been growing calls for Scotland to develop additional top-level tennis facilities to service the demand from players across the country.

Scott Lloyd, Chief Executive of the LTA, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership to improve tennis facilities in Scotland and to provide more opportunities for anyone to pick up a racket and get active.

“We want to ensure local communities have a range of accessible opportunities to get on court as part of our vision to see ‘tennis opened up’ to many more people. The opening of the state-of-the-art Oriam Indoor Tennis Centre is a significant milestone in that respect and we continue to look for further opportunities throughout Scotland.”

The new centre will provide a new home for the Oriam Tennis Programme and the Heriot-Watt University Tennis Club, hosting all their classes, training and competitions.
