This is a new group for anyone interested in playing some social tennis. It is a group for players of all standards, looking to meet other players for some friendly social matchplay and practice, and the odd competition and socialising who knows!
I haven't thought how this group might work best yet so any ideas let me know. I would suggest the following rules of engagement for now -
Ad hoc games - if you are looking to play please post 1) when you are free to play 2) where you might like to play & if courts are paid/free 3) how many players you are and need (i.e. singles/doubles) 4) roughly what standard you are :)
Organised games - I will look to post the odd organised event at the weekends or in the evenings, where we might try and commandeer 1 or 2 courts for some matches or practice, plus some social events such as play and picnic or a shandy at the pub. I am based in Leith so it might be at the free Links Courts but also happy to travel to other courts around Edinburgh. For organised events, I will ask for £1 per person attending. This is just to cover the meetup fees (which are extortionate at £83 per 6 months). Hope that is ok :)
As for me, I played a lot of tennis at school, but certainly a little rusty. Looking forward to getting some more practice in this summer, preferably doubles as singles involves too much running around in my mind ha ha.
Looking forward to some tennis this summer (when it stops raining) :)
