Championship Finals, Group Coaching

Hi Folks!

The Club Championships are progressing well - with only two days to go to Finals day the matches are even more competitive than they were last week - with some really top class tennis being played. A full programme tonight leads us to the Mixed Final tomorrow, Friday, night. This final always proves to be very exciting so it would be a nice way to spend your Friday night supporting the players...as I write the finalists aren't through until they complete their semis tonight...so I don't know who it'll be!

It's been a very exciting 2 weeks with lots of activity both on and off the court.The atmosphere each evening has been so good with lovely food being procured by volunteers in the kitchen and the bar being manned by Alex. The social highlight of this week was no doubt the annual Golden Oldies night hosted by Mick & Breege in aid of CRY. A superb meal, prepared by Breege, was enjoyed by all who attended with the brilliant figure of €1880.00 being raised on the night - including monies donated from volunteers who prepared the food on one or two of the evenings. All round a most successful evening...well done & thanks to all concerned.

Carmel & Johnny are looking forward to welcoming you to Finals day on Saturday...after a hectic two weeks all will be ready for a day of great tennis. A word to those regulars who play on Saturday morning - the Finals day programme will begin at 9am so court availability will be restricted...do check the website tomorrow night & you'll get details of the full programme for Saturday. As is traditional would you bring a plate of goodies for Finals day afternoon tea! Thanks a mil. The At Home is now fully subscribed - Karen & Anne Marie are working away in the background to make sure we all have a great night.
