The 2017 Aegon Team Tennis Scotland competition concludes this weekend with matches being played at venues throughout Scotland.
In the men’s first division, the Kinnoull club from Perth has won five out of five matches and looks set to take the championship for the first time. Stirling University conceded their away match against Strathgryffe on Sunday with no players available to travel to Houston however the current champions have one remaining tie to play, against Braid, and will take the runners-up place with a win against the Edinburgh side. In the only completed men’s section, Edinburgh University has won all its fixtures in Division 3 to be guaranteed promotion.
Blackhall women are on track to retain the women’s title but have two matches still to play. The championship should be decided on Saturday when the Edinburgh club travel to Glasgow to play the University team currently sitting in second position.
Bad weather has dogged the schedule this season but the majority of team captains have risen to the challenge of arranging and rescheduling matches. To date, 249 men and 96 women have represented the 44 teams in this year’s competition.
Final league standings will be published next week. Scotland’s men’s and women’s champions will qualify for the national playoffs to be played on 30th June next year. Both sides have been drawn at home.
