News & Events 5th April 2019

Well our Men’s second team did us proud against Naas in the Winter League Final at Castleknock last Sunday. The level of tennis was just brilliant. Well played Harry & Jack, Robin & Rob and Denis (Captain) & Ciaran. With the match delicately balanced at one match all the tension was palpable! But it wasn’t to be and they were just pipped in two tight tie breaks. Thanks to the great band of supporters who as always outnumbered any other club!

The Blue and Gold teams finish their campaign this Friday, both teams doing ok with the Gold team hoping for big points this week that would bring them through to the playoffs.
