News & Events 30th June 2017

Well let’s hope all our blood pressures are back to normal after the Men’s’ matches of both last Wednesday and Saturday! You guys certainly put on a show of super tennis and sportsmanship. Stephen asked me to be sure to extend a huge “Thank You” on behalf of the team to the band of supporters who turned out in such big numbers for both the Semi and the Final in Castleknock, it was much appreciated and here’s to next year in Class 1!
The 5 Mile League Final was contested last Sunday evening in Glenageary – Monkstown 1st v Monkstown 2nds! It was a very tight match with each game going to three sets, never saw a match played in such a sportsmanlike atmosphere with smiles all round with the 1st team just edging the win, congrats all round.
Just a reminder that the Handicap Tournament starts on Wed 19th July, entries must be in by Monday 10th and as I’ve said before if you can’t make it down to drop your entry in email your details and I’ll enter you.

CLUB NIGHT: Club Night tonight will be hosted by Barbara Liston….might seem a bit chilly – but wrap up & Barbara will see you get lots of tennis!

JUNIORS: The Junior Championships start next Monday….with the Finals on Saturday the 8th. Make sure you check the schedule well in advance for the times of your matches…Adrienne will have the times on the Notice Board a day ahead of your match.
There were very good results last week from Lansdowne, with two of our Juniors lifting titles. Josh making his comeback after his broken leg, won the U/14 boys doubles and Charlie won the boys U/12 doubles. Well done guys, great performances! Naas is the venue for those on the circuit this week…not sure there are that many travelling!

Despite the wintry weather this week, Stephen’s camp was enjoyed by all.
Next Camp…. Mon 10th July – Fri 14th July…Sign up sheet on the Notice Board.

Very very sad ending this week to the snippets……..no doubt you all know Veronica Cullen passed away last Monday….the shock and sadness is palpable amongst her friends in the tennis club.
