Unfortunately, Dollar have had to withdraw their team from Mens Division 3 for this summer’s league matches. The fixture list has been updated accordingly. It leaves it a bit ‘gappy’ I’m afraid but maybe that will leave the other teams enough time to recuperate from pulled hamstrings / aching biceps / blistered feet (delete as applicable) in time for their next match!
As the constraints of lockdown are gradually reduced, the weather is improving and thoughts immediately turn to tennis. Obviously!
As a sport, tennis has been lucky to have escaped the worst of the restrictions imposed upon us. We’ve been able to watch the pros in action around the world and — most of the time — have been able to play in one form or other.
And now the summer leagues are back!
The TCS Exec Committee have worked hard to compile a schedule of matches to keep you busy during the usual league months of April, May and June. Please note that a digital version of the full TCS Handbook will be available from your club secretary by mid-April. If they do not have it, get them to contact the Handbook Secretary.
But if you are just wanting to when you are playing and where, the matches are listed here.
Please note the slightly different format for matches this summer. This is to minimise the amount of social interaction off court, so, no mixing of teams and no after-match teas. Hopefully things will be more straightforward next season.
A decision regarding the Singles, Autumn and Winter leagues will be made later, once the lockdown rules are lightened further.
And also please note that the results of this summer’s leagues will not impact on promotions or relegations. These leagues will just be for fun… the intention is to get everyone playing again.
Given the exceptional circumstances in which we find ourselves, the TCS Executive Committee have cancelled all the current indoor (winter) league fixtures with immediate effect.
A decision regarding the Summer Leagues will be made closer to the scheduled first match dates (April).
As things stand today (20 March 2020) it’s good to know that tennis is still an acceptable, outdoor activity. Just be sensible, keep your distance and don’t shake hands at the end!
Stay safe. Be kind.
In addition, please note this message from Tennis Scotland.

May you live in interesting times…Apocryphal
I am writing this on Friday 13th March and sporting events are getting cancelled in all directions.
But with optimism and enthusiasm here are the fixture lists for 2020. Let’s hope we can get these played.
Stay safe. And be kind.
The Tennis Central Scotland AGM will be held on
Monday 25 November 2019
Stirling Sports Village
Today is 6 April and the 2019 fixtures are now ready to view on this site. The handbook has gone to print but please note that, because of last year’s GDPR legislation*, the full handbook is not being published in full on the website.
Printed copies will be sent to each club secretary as soon as they are available. Each club will be provided with enough copies so that one is available for each team captain.
* We have suspicions that email information from the website was used in phishing attempts of several TCS clubs recently. Please be alert to unexpected emails from ‘officials’ in your own clubs!
