News & Events 19th July 2018

What a week we’ve had for the Handicaps! The matches have been so keenly contested and the atmosphere has been brilliant. Well done Niall & Denise for the all the encouragement you gave members to enter the various events. It paid off, especially in the doubles events where there was a great entry. A big Thank You to the Ladies (& Men!) who have catered each evening and provided delicious homemade goodies. Finals Day is next Saturday commencing around 1.30pm (TBC). As is traditional please “Bring a Plate” of goodies for Afternoon Tea. The BBQ numbers has hit the dizzy heights of 94, so the message from Mary/Geraldine is that if you’ve signed up to attend please pay Mary, Geraldine or Judy €30 before Saturday. The BBQ will commence with a Drinks reception at 7pm followed by the meal at 7.30. Thanks to all our members who have forfeited their courts for the last 2 weeks while the Handicaps were being played. Back to normal as of next Monday.
Carrickmines Open was on last week and we had members in the winning enclosure! Harry & Olivia (Crossan) won the Class 2 Mixed Doubles – & Harry & Kevin (Wylde) were just pipped in the Men’s’ Doubles Final.
There will be no Club Night tonight due to the Handicaps but will be back next week when Declan Cotter has kindly volunteered to host the night.
