News & Events 20th July 2017

Well the Senior Handicaps got underway last night in typical Irish summer weather, gloomy with heavy outbursts of rain! Fair play to all who were scheduled to play, all matches were finished. Please check the Order of Play each morning as matches may be re-scheduled late the previous evening and please no more “unavailability”, Greg & Deirdre find it so difficult when matches have to be rescheduled.
Even if you haven’t entered the tournament do pop down & enjoy either a coffee & a sambo or a glass of wine/beer and join in the social side of the tournament, new members are particularly welcome! Don’t forget to sign up for the BBQ on Finals night, Saturday 29th. Names must be signed up by Wednesday next 26th.

Just a reminder that there’ll be no Club Night tonight or next Thursday.

JUNIORS: I forgot to mention last the super day the Juniors had on their Championship Finals day. Well done to all who reached Finals, the list of the Finalists is on the notice board. Well done to Harry & Rachel H who are the new U/18 Champions of the club, both champs said a lovely few words at the presentation of prizes! A big “Thank you” to the ladies who did so much work in the kitchen producing endless food for all & sundry! Also Adrienne would like me to mention all who helped out with umpiring the various finals.
We’re heading for another Finals Day tomorrow, the Handicap tournament has its annual BBQ at 3pm followed by presentation of prizes. Thanks to Adrienne, ably assisted by Anna Schwer, for running the tournament so efficiently!
The next Tennis / Fun Camp run by Stephen starts next Monday 24th. Signup sheet on the Notice Board or you can email your details to me.

No Juniors on the circuit last week, it was left to the Seniors in Carrickmines with a few great performances. Julie Byrne was just pipped in the semis of the Open, Conor Gannon reached the Final of the U/ 21 event and just lost out in a very close match. Pat Cowley showed her usual resilience in the Final of the Graded singles and just lost out in a marathon. But we did get a title, Johnny O’Shea & Fergus O’Ruairc had a super final against our own Harry Crossan & Harry Owens from Sandycove, well done Fergus & Johnny.
