Tealing Tennis Club (1950-1958)
Tealing Tennis Club was formed in 1950 at a meeting held at the tennis courts, which the RAF had vacated after the war ended. A Committee was appointed and Mrs Miller, a very enthusiastic lady, was elected the first President. The first hardy souls to enlist included Mrs Miller of Moatmill, Councillor Mr George Mudie and Jessie Mudie and the Rev. Charles B Harkness. The pavilion needed some renovation and a team of volunteers soon had the building spic and span. After the first two years, the Club played friendly matches against near neighbours Longforgan and Invergowrie. They then joined the Midlands Tennis League, Fifth Division. Ron Campbell recalls" although we did not win many matches, we really enjoyed the experience of playing at courts such as Morgan, Craigielea, Dundee High School, Longforgan, Invergowrie and the YMCA courts". Unfortunately, support dwindled and the Club disbanded in the late fifties.
