Leagues

Tennis Tayside runs a number of leagues which run during the summer and winter months.

The Junior League is for teams of four players (16 & under), any combination of girls and boys, and players play a mixture of singles and doubles matches.

The majority of the the Adult leagues are for teams of six players who play doubles, normally each pair plays three two set rubbers against each opposing pair.  The exception to this is the new  Singles / Doubles League which was trialled last year and is running as one of the adult leagues this season, see below.

Winter Indoor League  2016 – 17

The Winter Indoor League is a less formal League than the summer ones and generally runs from the end of October through to the beginning of April the following year.  With it being over subscribed year on year this year a second venue has been added – the Gleneagles Indoor Arena – with six of our clubs opting to play their matches and social tennis there.  David Lloyd at Monifieth is the other, original, venue.  The matches start on Wednesday, 2nd November, at Gleneagles and Saturday, 29th October, at David Lloyd.

Singles / Doubles League 2016

This new league – Singles / Double League 2016 – started last year and was a great opportunity for team players to play both singles and doubles.  A PDF version of this year’s League fixtures can be obtained by clicking this link  : Men’s Singles & Doubles League 2016 v2

Teams were asked to please contact each other ASAP for first match arrangements and then contact each other on the Friday six days in advance of the next fixture.  Both captains are equally responsible for making contact.  This year there are three divisions of 5 teams in the Men’s section and no teams in the Ladies.

Match start time is 6:15pm.  Match Teas are not required but can be done by arrangement.  A smaller rolling snack-able tea may be preferred by many teams.  This League has its own score card – download by clicking this link :-  Singles League Scorecard 2016

Scorecards are to emailed / sent to taysidesinglesleague@gmail.com by the winning team captain for the TT website (as in the Adults leagues) but in the near future results will need to be submitted directly onto LTA website by the captain (as in the Junior league).  For this reason it is important that all players have British Tennis (LTA) membership and are affiliated to the club they are playing for.
