HistoryEdit

The Scottish Lawn Tennis Championships tournament began in 1878.[4] It was originally held at the Grange Club[5] in Edinburgh until 1892. It returned only one more time in 1994. In 1893 the event was played once only in St Andrews.[6] It was then played at Moffat during the late 1890s[7] and most of the 1900s.[8] In 1908 it changed location again and the championships were staged at Bridge of Allan[9] until 1914. The championships returned to Edinburgh for a second time at what would become its semi-permanent home, Craiglockhart, from 1913, 1919 to 1929, then again 1946 through to 1960, 1963, then 1965 to 1975. During all of the 1930s the championships were staged at the Peebles Hotel Hydro courts.[10] The championships was staged only once during its time in Glasgow in 1958.[11]

The tournament featured both men's and women's singles competition as well as same sex and mixed doubles.[12] The tournament survived for a period of 116 years until 1994.

Between 1997 and 2002, a tournament called The Scottish Tennis Championships was part of the ATP Challenger Tour. It was played at the Craiglockhart Tennis Centre in Edinburgh on green clay courts. The 2015 ATP Challenger Tour indoor event in Glasgow was also called The Scottish Championships.

FinalsEdit

Notes: Challenge round: The final round of a tournament, in which the winner of a single-elimination phase faces the previous year's champion, who plays only that one match. The challenge round was used in the early history of tennis (from 1877 through 1921) [13] in some tournaments, not all. * indicates challenger.
