Four Nations' Championships 2017

Thursday, September 07, 2017

Scotland hosts the 2017 Four Nation’s Junior Championships this weekend at the Scotstoun Leisure Centre in Glasgow. This annual team event for players in the 12 & Under, 14 & Under and 18 & Under age groups welcomes an England team for the first time for many years to compete against the best young players from Ireland, Wales and the host nation.

Team Scotland defends the 14 & Under and 18 & Under age group titles won in Cardiff last year with Wales looking to win the 12 & Under age group championship again. With all four nations naming strong teams, competition will be fierce over the three days of play.

Colin Fleming, National Head Coach said "I am really looking forward to the Four Nations' Championships this weekend especially with England re-joining the competition. I have great memories of playing in the Four Nations' Championships as they provide an opportunity to compete in a team environment in a mainly individual sport. The players always get right behind each other and this support brings out their best tennis. I am sure this years' championships will be as keenly contested as ever."

Teams arrive for practice on Thursday with play starting at 9.30 am on Friday and continuing through to Sunday afternoon when the age group titles and overall championship will be decided.

Spectators are welcome to come along to Scotstoun throughout the weekend and support the teams.
