Interpros Aug 9 & 10; Club Championships sign up extended

Well tomorrow, Friday, sees history being made in Monkstown LTC as the club hosts the Senior Interpro Championships for the first time in our 142 year history.

The best players in Leinster - Munster - Connacht and Ulster will compete over the next two days to decide the 2019 Interpro Champions.

We hope you can make it along at some stage over the two days and watch some of Ireland's top players in action....I feel it has started already as I've just given a big "welcome home" hug to our own Julie....she says she is so excited about the event and is out practicing with Stephen!

Schedule: First matches will commence @ 4pm tomorrow ....all going to plan we should see Julie on court @ 6pm approx. Play will run until 9.30 approx. On Saturday play will commence @ 9am and run right through until early evening. There will be no court availability from 10 am tomorrow and from 8.30 am on Saturday morning. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Also please note that there will be NO supervised tennis for Juniors , tomorrow Friday.

The Club Championships are easing ever closer - closing date should be today for entry forms.... but Carmel & Johnny have extended the date to Sunday next...but that's it! The sign up sheet for volunteers to do "sign in" duty and catering duty is on the Notice Board...as always it is much appreciated.

Club Night: Club Night tonight will be hosted by Robert Sheehan....as always thanks a mil Rob!

Our Juniors continue to enjoy a super summer in the tennis club....what with tennis camps & supervised tennis. REMINDER; NO SUPERVISED TENNIS TOMORROW FRIDAY. Juniors are more than welcome to come down & watch the Interpros but they must show respect for the players - and any child under 8 must have an adult with them.

That's it for this week as we look forward to a feast of good tennis for the w/end.....our own Fergus O'Ruairc is playing for Connacht so Leinster v Connacht will have an extra bit of bite!
