West of Scotland League 2019


Lanark Tennis Club would like to join the West of Scotland Summer Doubles League 2019. Before progressing with the affiliation we would like to gauge interest from our members and their appetite/availability to be considered for selection in the team(s) for league matches. 

What do you need to know?

The Summer Season will run from April through to July. Matches are generally played on weekday evenings during this period (with most matches concluded by end of June), with each team having approximately 4 home games and 4 away. 

NB. As Lanark only has two courts, if the away team wish to play all matches at the same time, we will require to travel to their courts. So, we must be willing and prepared to play more away matches than home. 

Match structure

  • Each team is made up of 6 players, 3 doubles pairings. Pairings are seeded 1, 2 and 3. Players are expected to play 3 sets against their opponents (even if they lose the first 2 sets).

  • Dates and times of matches are decided at the start of the season by team captains and matches are committed to these dates.

  • Games are expected to commence at 7pm on weeknights (6.30pm for April games). For away matches, players need to be at the opposition club, changed and on court by that time. (Most clubs are Glasgow-based, but could be as far afield as Helensburgh).

  • No adult shall be allowed to play for more than one club in West of Scotland competitions during each season. 

  • Home team players are expected to provide refreshments (tea/coffee, sandwiches and cakes) for the away team before travelling home. Therefore, each member of the team(s) for home matches must provide a catering contribution (e.g. sandwiches, snacks, cakes etc) for each home game.

(PLEASE NOTE: To be considered to play for Lanark Tennis Club in the WoS Leagues, you MUST be a member of Lanark Tennis Club and have a British Tennis Membership (BTM) No.)
