There are three all-weather floodlit tennis courts situated near Pringle House. Teams compete throughout the year against other schools at U18, U15 and U13 levels, in recent years winning Scottish honours and at national level in the Aegon Cup and Independent Schools’ Championships at Eton College.

Additionally, the sport is played less formally as an afternoon games option by many boys each year. Boys practise during the winter on indoor tennis courts and have access to a local tennis club. For elite players we do offer the option of our Tennis Academy; the first partnership in Scotland to provide specialist training with a high standard of education and specially adapted curriculum.
