Snippets of 23 May 2019

The Summer League continues with a very high standard of tennis on view in all Classes. Two Ladies teams (4th and 8th) and the Men’s’ 5th team are unbeaten. All the teams love a bit of support, so do think of popping down to the Club from  7 pm on Fridays, Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday afternoon 2pm – 5.30. 

Ladies Morning:- Well done to the Ladies Morning Committee (Anthea, Caroline, Fiona, Linda, Niamh and Noreen) for transforming the Clubhouse into a beautiful Summer vision yesterday. It was all connected to the super “Summer Festival” Tournament they ran. Some competitors also went along with the theme and looked fabulous. New members were made particularly welcome and a great fun (yet competitive) morning was had by all. The display of food was so tasty with a lot of effort being put in by all players. Congrats to the Prize winners and those who won in the raffle.

The 5 Mile League got underway last Sunday with our Monkstown team putting up a battling performance, some of the team taking to the court for the first time in a League match! So enjoy the next four Sundays and keep the Monkstown flag flying! There are two more Ladies Mornings (29th May & 5th June) before the Summer holidays, so make an extra effort to come down for some tennis and a chat!

Juniors: We had two Juniors on the circuit this week with Elliot and Patrick playing in the Phoenix U/12 event played in Newtownpark.  Elliot came through the tournament unbeaten and won the Gold event. Well done Elliot – a super performance.   Patrick was playing in his first tournament on the circuit and was so chuffed to be in the runners up enclosure to win the Silver event!  An exciting start to what hopefully will be a successful run for you both in Open Tournaments!
