The Under 10 Christmas Fun Tournament – What a Cracker!

 xmas-1

Seventeen children participated in the Under 10’s Christmas Fun Tournament which took place in the Club on Friday, 7th January 2011. Postponed in December because of the snow, the tournament was an eagerly awaited event.

Although snow was forecast once again, the skies remained blue for the competition. The over 8’s played a mixture of doubles, mixed doubles and singles matches and all were good humoured but competitive games.

Three older juniors, Mark Earle and Jack and Ben Gannon organised the under 8’s and kept them very busy with a variety of tennis games and uni-hockey. There were lots of smiles on the centre court as the younger players demonstrated just how good they were at controlling the balls! Thanks boys for helping out!

Over €60 was raised for the Tennis for GOAL fund. Thank you to everyone who took part.

The Under 14 Christmas Fun Tournament

It was good to see a great turnout of 22 juniors participating in the recent U14 club competition on Friday 7th January.

Players were organised into two doubles teams with the winner of each team receiving a prize of new tennis balls!

The format was a round robin playing to 15 points with total scores being very close. Entry was €5 per person with €95 raised for the Tennis for GOAL fund.

Winners were team 1 David Cullen and Jack Gannon with winners from the other team 2 being Jack Hartnett and Alex Boyne.

Congratulations to the winners and well done to everyone who participated in the event which was dominated by boys with only two girls taking part, Hannah and Katie.

Look forward to seeing our regular girls playing in the next tournament.
