News & Events 27th July 2018

What a super Finals Day we had last Saturday for the Handicap tournament, not to mention the hugely successful BBQ that night! The tennis was very competitive and was great viewing for the large number of members who came down to watch.
As always, the afternoon tea was delicious and beautifully presented by Mary and Geraldine, thanks so much to everyone who brought down a plate of goodies! Another tradition which we all love is Dee (Nolan) and her ice cream wafers. For the BBQ Mary (Meagher) went to no end of trouble to make the place look magical, our friend Colin Byrne produced his usual delicious steaks accompanied by equally delicious salads.
Handicap Results are as follows:-
Mens’ Singles – Kieran Bolger
Ladies Singles – Carmel McAllister
Mens’ Doubles – Mark Smyth & Nessan Kelly
Ladies Doubles – Suzanne Broughan & Dairine Ni Mheadhra
Mixed Doubles – Neil Stokes & Arlene Sommerville
Mixed Doubles Plate – Nessan Kelly & Caroline McNamara
Well done Niall & Denise on a brilliant couple of weeks, have a little rest now before the Championships!!

JUNIORS: The Juniors also had their Handicap Finals day last weekend, Friday was their special day. There was a real buzz about the place with lots of parents down supporting. A big thank you to Adrienne for organizing the tournament & prizes which all went down a treat! Thanks to Harry (Crossan) also for assisting Adrienne. Brian Schwer did a superb job Barbequing 70 odd burgers for the players and fans! All those present got a big thrill when Sarah Healy popped in for the presentation of prizes, complete with her recently won 2 Gold medals from the European u/18 Athletic Championships, we’re all so proud of you Sarah!
Adrienne finishes her Day Manager role and did a great job for the last six weeks. Karen (Mac Kenna) will be on Day Manager duty from next Monday for the month of August.
