A STRING of Edinburgh tennis players have had outstanding seasons recognised with inclusion in various Scotland teams for the annual triangular internationals against Ireland and Wales at the Lansdowne club, Dublin, from September 9-11.

Edinburgh provide both senior women’s representatives in Craiglockhart’s Mhairi Brown, and Emma Devine from David Lloyd (Newhaven).
