News & Events 14th February 2019

There’s lots of tennis being played these days, covering all age groups. Firstly Winter League, super week for the Ladies this week with seven of the eight teams winning and the team that were beaten were only pipped 2/1. The Men had a 50/50 result, with three out of six teams winning, still not bad. With two matches left it’s certainly all to play for, so give it your all and bring in a few extra points.
There’s only one match scheduled for 9.30 am and with two matches at 11 am this Sunday, so you’ll get a couple of games if you come down for Men’s’ Morning. Ladies matches continue in the afternoon from 2pm. Courts should be available from 4 pm.
The Easter Cup league stars on Saturday 23rd and will run for five weeks. Joe Byrne is Captain Fantastic of the team, who are mustard keen! Matches are played at 11am. Courts 4, 5, & 6 will be required on Saturday 23rd.
The Blue & Gold League starts on Friday 1st March with matches played at 7pm. Further details to follow.
