Members of the club are very active in the West of Scotland Leagues with 53 teams entered into the summer leagues across open, senior and junior events.
Strathgryffe are extremely fortunate to have Derek Brown as their Head Coach, he is one of Scotland's few LTA Master Performance Coaches and was the first to gain this qualification in 2010. He was a former Tennis Scotland Coach of the Year and is supported by two Level 4 coaches and two Level 3 coaches.
The club are not without their triumphs with one player achieving a GB cap, Cameron Kerr, who played for the GB U12 team in the European Winter Cup and also in the Queenswood International. There have been around 10 players with Scottish caps and many more with West of Scotland caps.

After talking with Head Coach Derek Brown, Clinical Director of Brite Dental Bridge of Weir and Houston Joss Reid comments,
“Brite Dental is proud to be partnering together to promote the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle for all. After talking with the club administrators, we understand that across the country there is an issue around youth development in the sport. It seems that a lack of investment in local clubs is a primary factor. We hope this partnership can address this issue for the surrounding area.”
Head Coach, Derek Brown stated, "The funding from Brite Dental is most welcome and will help to alleviate costs of training of elite juniors. The funding will also provide some additional support for elite juniors in competition."
As proud sponsors of Strathgryffe and also in the interest of oral healthcare, Brite Dental are offering all members of the club 10% off private dental treatments.
