  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

  • "Great morning for tennis today, nice winter sun. This one came down to serve consistency - I was first to eliminate the double faults that we were both plagued with at the start, and built a decent lead before a closer second half of 2nd set. Nice to get one back after Guillaume won the last 2 encounters! Thanks!"  -- Clive

Reveal CommentAdam Leel bt Guillaume De Cremoux (Feb 11) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "The stage was set: Me vs Guillaume. Scotland vs France. Good vs Evil. Having been swept aside by Guillaume a few weeks ago, it was time for redemption; I assume this was why there were so many french fans in town. The match started fairly evenly, both of us playing well in the wind. I managed to steal the set with some consistent play then I shot ahead in the second set to reach 5-2. Guillaume fought back admirably, getting to 4-5, but I showed some good composure to get that last game. Then the crowd went wild."  -- Adam

Player Comments:

  • "With some big serving and deep groundstrokes Aaron took the first set fairly quickly. The turning point was when he opened a new tin of balls! Unfortunately he cut his his pinky on the edge of the metal seal and it clearly affected his game. With an improvised bandage his level dropped while mine improved and I was able to stay consistent over the final 2 sets. Will be good to play again when he's all healed."  -- Adam

Player Comments:

  • "I just squeaked my first multi-deuce service game then managed to capitalise to go 4-0 up in the first set and held on to win it. The 2nd set was much tighter with us matching one another for breaks and holds til 4-4. Some loose play from me and some lovely aggression from Des saw him break and it looked like it might turn into another long night! But I ran enough to take advantage of some slightly loose serving from Des and took the next 3 games for a very satisfying win. Excellent match and good tactical rallies. Another night and another surface...?"  -- Doug

Collapse AllMeadows, Edinburgh Doubles - Round 5 | Thursday 7 September 2017 to Wednesday 15 November 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 October 2017)

It was good to see some close doubles matches played out in Round 5 of Meadows Tennis League, although sadly we just had one group this time. Our overall winners were the pair who were promoted from Group 2 last time, so congratulations to them, although only half the possible matches were played so we won't know what the results might have been had more matches been played! Thanks to everyone for taking part and we hope to see you back for Round 6!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Shingo and Evelin for following up their Group 2 win last round by taking the Group 1 crown this time, finishing 2 points clear of runners up Page and Helen. It was a good performance from Stewart and David in third place too, who took Page and Helen to 3 sets although unfortunately the match finished TBC. Don't forget to schedule your matches sooner to claim the midway bonus points next time!

Final Rankings:

  1. Shingo Hiraki & Evelin Kurdi [W2, UF1] 5 WINNER
  2. Page Munro & Helen Boyd [W1, L1, UF1] 3 RUNNER UP
  3. Stewart Watson & David Wood [UF2] 1

Player Comments:

  • "It's not always easy getting matches arranged in the doubles league but tonight proved it' worth it with an extremely enjoyable match against two talented players with gusty wind not overly detracting from the level of play. Stewart and I made a good fight back in the first set from I think 2-5 down but could not close out in the final two games. We had the chance to be 4-1 up in set two but strong play from Shingo and Evelyn meant we closed the night at 4-4."  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "This was a very enjoyable match between two regular doubles pairings from Meadow City Tennis Club (members club based at Meadows Courts) - Stewart and I grabbed the first set with a lot of good rallies, and had chance to be something like 3-0/1 up in set two which I ruined with a spectacular misjudgment of a ball flying a couple of meters long (yes I netted it ...) - after which Helen and Page powered to a string of winning games to take set two. We have plans to finish the match on Saturday morning ..."  -- David
