News & Events 18th May 2017

  Very good results from the Summer League teams this week.  The Men nearly had a clean sweep of wins only to be denied by a very tight point lost!…well done to captains Stephen – Robin – Ciaran – Greg – & Niall for motivating their teams so well! The Ladies had four wins from seven matches, with the Ladies 1st team playing a cracker of a match last night against Fitzwilliam…they lost to the league favourites, but Kate – Rachel – Caroline in the singles & Gina / Julie (R) – Geraldine / Anna all played their hearts out! Again the teams are spearheaded by captains Geraldine – Karen – Catherine – Arlene – Breege – Siobhan – & Deirdre….wishing you all more success! You should pop down any of the evenings & give the teams some well deserved support!
