Ladies Morning: A big Thank You to the Ladies morning Committee  for all the work they put into organising the various events during the year – also to the Ladies who volunteer to host the Wednesday mornings. From next Wednesday (22nd)  there will be no Ladies Morning for the summer months ( I wonder who’ll have to wash the T Towels!!)…but the Junior Day Manager will sort you with a court if you want to play  (except during the Junior Champs & H/Caps)

Club Night:   Club Night tonight will be hosted by Vera Sheehan…pop down for a game.

JUNIORS:  The Junior Day Manager will be here from next Monday 20th June. Adrienne Cusack will be on duty from 10 am – 5.30 daily  ( except from 1pm – 2.15 pm)

The Committee has asked me to remind you of a few Guidelines for Juniors re times etc.

Junior Times  10 am. – 1pm. / 2.15pm – 5.30pm  Monday – Friday.  Juniors may not be in the club before 10 am  or  between the hours of 1 – 2.15 pm….these times are reserved for Seniors only.  If  a Junior leaves the club during the recognised hours, the Day Manager is not responsible for their whereabouts.  We hope you all have a great fun summer in the club playing tennis & making lots of friends. We particularly welcome our new members.

Good luck to our 8 Juniors Lucy,  Kate,  Eva,  Alex,  Ellie, Libby, Isobel, &  Orna who head off on the circuit to Castlebar for the w/end!

Golf Outing:  Just a reminder to our members who are playing in the Golf Outing (Fri 24th) to bring a little goodie as a prize so there’ll be “something for everyone in the audience!”. I’m including all players for dinner.


That’s it folks….enjoy the huge w/end of sport ahead & to repeat on a super achievement so far, the best of luck to our 5 Ladies &  2  (3?)  Men’s league teams.
