2009 Handicaps

      

Our annual Handicap Tournament turned out to be a great success! We had 60 children participating and approximately 190 matches were played during the week. It was a very busy week for us and most enjoyable (most of the time!).

A lot of new children entered the tournament, many of whom reached final stages. It is always great to see new children getting involved and getting hooked on tennis – just like our older members! We were delighted to meet you and hope that you enjoyed yourselves and got to meet lots of new friends.

Our aim during the Handicap Tournament is for all the  children to play as much tennis as possible and have fun. It gave us great pleasure to see so many new faces playing on finals day – please keep it up! Thank you to all the children who participated. We got what we wanted – loads of tennis matches and lots of new kids getting involved.

Finally thanks as always to Judy for all her help. Thank you to our fantastic Junior Committee who worked so hard to make our week so successful. A huge thank you to Anne Crossan (head of the Junior Committee) who puts in endless hours. Thank you also to Rhona who managed to do a wonderful barbeque for all of us – she did a fantastic job.

Thank you also to the older juniors who helped umpire matches for the younger children. We really appreciate all the help! Thanks also to Siofra and Julie who helped with the U8 Fun Event – two great helpers!! We love to see all our experienced players getting involved with our new Monkstown players and making them feel so welcome. These are the reasons why Monkstown LTC continues to be THE BEST TENNIS CLUB!!

Thank you.
