When I was a little girl in Haddington, I joined the Tennis Club on Glebe Terrace, but it was known as Florabank tennis court. The Subscription for a child was £2:00 per annum…..I remember having to do chores to earn this amount.

Below is photo of Morag Wallace on these courts…….. which eventually made way for the new houses at Herdmanflatt.


Below is photo of tennis courts in Neilson Park after WW2…….
See Pavillon in background, with the “Parkie’s ” house on left of photo.

This photo is opening of new tennis courts in 1955 with Provost R.J. Fortune doing the needful, with Willie Hands on the right.

Bringing you right up-to-date – here are a few members of todays Haddington Tennis Club….. a well used and thiving club.

Anyone for a game ?

With thanks to Irene Clark [ for above two photographs ] …….
