After an exciting first round of action at the TS 300 events, the stage is set for the next round of the Tennis Scotland Open Tour to commence, with the TS 500 taking place this weekend.
Around 100 competitors will be involved throughout the weekend at four venues across Scotland, all aiming to win a place at the TS 1000, the final stage of the tournament. The four winning men and women from the respective draws will progress through to the TS 1000 which will be held at the National Tennis Centre in Stirling, in November. Among the competitors taking part will be the 13 men’s and 8 women’s qualifiers from the TS 300 events who will be looking to cause an upset at the TS 500 stage.
The venues holding the events this weekend are:
• Craiglockhart Tennis Centre, Edinburgh – 20th and 22nd October
• Gorbals Community Indoor Tennis Centre – 21st and 22nd October
• National Tennis Centre, University of Stirling – 21st and 22nd October
• Nuffield Racquets, Milngavie – 21st and 22nd October
Format for the TS 500 will be a Third-set Match Tiebreak which will take the place of the Fast4 format which was used in the TS 300’s.
