• 3 MINUTE READ
The first-ever Padel Tennis Scottish Cup winners are set to be crowned - so here's everything you need to know.
The inaugural Scottish Cup Finals will take place on Sunday, 26 November. The tournament has followed the same structure to the tennis Scottish Cup - teams have been competing in a home and away knockout format ahead of the finals at a neutral venue.
Edinburgh Sports Club women secured the first finals spot and are yet to lose a rubber. They bested David Lloyd Shawfair and Bridge of Allan on their way to the showpiece play-off.
Meanwhile, their fellow finalists West of Scotland Padel women beat Thistle in a closely contested semi-final 3-2. The rubbers were split 2-2 after two rounds of matches which ultimately led to a 10-point tie-break shootout, which WOSP claimed to secure their spot in Sunday’s final.
In the men’s draw, Barnton Park Padel Club are also yet to lose a rubber with clean sweeps over David Lloyd Shawfair, Edinburgh Park and West of Scotland Padel.
In the bottom half of the draw, Thistle have downed Edinburgh Sports Club, Bridge of Allan and Aberdeen TC en route to the finals. The all-Edinburgh clash on Sunday will see players from East of Scotland’s GB Padel County team go head-to-head.
What's the format?
The finals will take place at David Lloyd Shawfair, in Midlothian, from 2pm. Each match will feature four rubbers played in doubles over the best of three sets, including a 10-point match-tie break as the final set.
If the tie is 2-2 after the four rubbers, a 10-point tie-break shootout will be held.
The 2023 winners will make history when they become the first-ever teams to lift the Scottish Cup.
