Running from mid-April to the end of June, the Tennis season at Dollar is another reason for pupils to look forward to the summer months. Tennis remains a popular choice for our pupils, both within PE lessons and optional co-curricular clubs, with over 700 pupils playing each year.


With no less than 12 astroturf courts (which double as hockey pitches throughout the rest of the year), our campus is a great place to train competitively or simply to play for fun. We offer weekly specialist skills clinic, open to all pupils, and also regularly bring in external coaches such as Scottish Tennis Coach Judy Murray and Scotland Performance Coach Adam Brown to improve standards across the board. Every lunchtime during the summer term all of our Senior pupils have access to the tennis courts, which are supervised by a member of PE staff.

All children in our Prep & Junior Schools will play tennis during curriculum time. In the Senior School, boys and girls in Form 1 and 2 all play tennis within their PE lessons. From Form 3 upwards, pupils can choose it as their option for PE during the summer term. We have recently introduced pickleball from Junior 1 upwards, both within the PE curriculum and through a thriving pickleball club.

In addition to timetabled lessons, we have optional co-curricular tennis from Prep 4 upwards, which over 250 pupils participate in regularly. All abilities are welcome to join our tennis club, from beginners all the way through to the large number of pupils who play at regional and national level. For those who are keen, there’s the chance to represent the school in competitive matches.
