Improving without opponents

I need a way to bridge the gap between solo drills and match performance.
My club has no players available for matches nor drills. I'm in the city's inter-club ladder which provides a match every six weeks. More matches will be available after I improve up the ladder.
I'm in the worst bracket and have never won a game since starting one year ago.
I am a solo-drills master. I've mastered all advanced level solo drills, eg. fore/back vari-length drive, volley, cross combo, figure8 volley, ghosting, etc. max reps for all. I'm now creating my own drills cuz I've exhausted everything on the internet.
The problem is that all those stroking and movement skills breakdown when a new variable (the opponent) is introduced. Eg. tracking skills difficult to improve solo.
Teaching pros seem to want to teach only stroke details. Some are willing to do match-relevant work (strategy, tactics, movement), but it seems outside the box for them. They seem to have no curriculum for that, which forces me to create the scenarios.
