News & Events 15th December 2016

The big news of the week is the brilliant performances of Conor, Josh, Charlie, and Roy in the Winter National Match plays run by Tennis Ireland last weekend.
Roy won the U/12 Singles, Conor was pipped in the Final of the U/16 event (despite playing with what he discovered afterwards was a fractured finger!),  Josh won the 3rd Place playoff match in the U/14 singles and Charlie won the 3rd place playoff match in the U/12 singles. To have four of our Juniors so highly ranked in the country is a huge honour for the club.

The mixed turkey tournament played last Sunday, was a great success….Well done to our new Captains Greg & Deirdre…….you’ve passed your first test with flying colours! There was a little goodie  for “everyone in the audience” with the main winners as follows;
