An iconic country estate set beneath the beautiful Ochil Hills, The Gleneagles Hotel has been a luxury destination for nearly a century.
The 850-acre estate epitomises the rugged natural beauty for which Scotland is famed and offers guests a glorious playground of country pursuits and activities. Whether you come to fly a Harris’ Hawk, play golf, ride horses, play tennis, go off-roading, train gundogs, shoot game, fish, enjoy Michelin-starred dining, or relax in an award-winning spa, Gleneagles offers a world of unforgettable experiences.
Tennis has been played at Gleneagles since the 1920s – this image shows a mixed double tournament in 1927.
In the 1980s tennis legend Virginia Wade hosted a tennis weekend at Gleneagles. In 2015 Gleneagles opened a new indoor tennis facility with four acrylic surfaced indoor courts, a perfect complement to the five outdoor ones. Court hire is available on a pay & play basis, no membership required, and a team of expert coaches offer tuition for all ages and abilities.
Since it’s opening, the Gleneagles Arena has played host to a number of exciting tennis events, including an exhibition match in June 2015 with Greg Rusedski, Pat Cash, Henri Leconte, and Thomas Enqvist, and several training events led by icons such as Judy Murray, Leon Smith and Louis Cayer.
