****Scottish National League
The Scottish Vets played two teams in the 2016-17 competition. Scottish Vets A (Tam Lawlor (Capt.), Alan Whitton, Dariusz Szymczak, Brian Wright) competed in the 1st Division and finished in an excellent 4th place, winning 3, drawing 1 and losing three to the top three teams (Drum A, Murrayfield, North Ayrshire). Alan, Tam and Dariusz played in the first week, winning 1 and drawing 1. On the second weekend, Brian, Alan and Tam were outclassed by Drum A, Murrayfield and North Ayrshire A. Survival in the division depended on a good third weekend (1st April) and Brian, Tam and Alan played well to defeat both South Ayrshire (4-2) and Triangle A (Aberdeen juniors making up the core of the team) (4-2) to finish a healthy 4th (of 8) and maintain our place in the division.
Scottish Vets 2 played in the 3rd Division and with 2 wins and a crucial draw from 7 matches, finished 6th thus avoiding relegation. Good effort from the guys (Lance Stockdale (1 match), Richard Masterson, Ian Hislop, Andy McIntyre).

**** 2017 19-2-2017 Doubles Report *****
Scottish Veterans TTA in Veterans British League, Feb 18-19th, 2017
In a hard fought competition, the Scottish Veterans Team has gained promotion in the VBL. This excellent news is down to some brilliant play by Gerry (winning 9 out of 10 in Feb (18 out of 20 across the two weekends)) and strong support by Colin over two weekends with Roy and Alan W
contributing one weekend each, the team gained promotion by the narrowest of margins, going to count back.
