News & Events 7th February 2019

Well the big, and I mean big, news of this week is the fantastic win of Conor Gannon in Stavangar, Norway last Saturday. Conor won an ITF International tournament which is a massive achievement. All the hard work you’re putting in is paying off Conor. After a brief visit home he heads off to Holland today followed by a tournament in Turkey the following week. We all wish you the very best of luck and are so proud to have a Monkstown member featuring so prominently on the European circuit.
Winter League reaches the halfway stage this weekend, good results for the Men last week with four out of the six teams winning, the Ladies had three teams registering a win. All to play for over the next couple of weeks. Worth noting good wins for three of our Juniors who are making their debut at Senior League level, Theo, Sam, and Philip, well done guys!
