Competitive Tennis

Internal

We offer a range of competitions and tournaments throughout the calendar year to cater for all standards of play. Our annual Club Championships, which usually take place the last two weeks in August, date back more than 100 years with the Club honours board listing all the men and lady champions since inception. The Championships are truly the highlight of the competitive year at Monkstown.

The highest participatory event of the year, the Handicap Championships, are held in July. The doubles events in this tournament have a social dimension as all pairings are drawn from a hat. That is where the niceties end with the Handicaps being very much a competitive tournament!

External

Our men’s and ladies’ teams are well represented in all four of the main Dublin Lawn Tennis Council (DLTC) Leagues – Summer, Floodlit, Senior and Winter. The pennants on display in the Clubhouse bear witness to the successes of the various teams in these leagues over the years. You can see all the DLTC Leagues here.

In recent years, the Club has entered teams in a number of relatively new tournaments that provide a more regular flow of organised competitive play between clubs locally. These tournaments include the Blue & Gold (Mixed), Five Mile League (Ladies), Ladies Charity League and the Easter Cup (Men).

2019 Senior Interprovincial Championships

Monkstown will host the Senior Interprovincial Championships on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th August. This will be our first time to host an Interprovincial event and will see the top six male and female players from Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster do battle on our courts over two days of top-class competitive tennis.

Members are welcome to attend both days of play and indeed are encouraged to take part in what promises to be a wonderful festival of tennis.

 SOCIAL TENNIS

IMG_3704.jpg

We run regular social tennis events, available to Club members of all abilities, allowing members to enjoy a game of tennis and meet other people from the Club. The tennis varies in standard but the emphasis is always on having an enjoyable time. Just turn up to the Club house and whoever is hosting will pair you up with a doubles partner. If you are new to tennis or the Club, they are the ideal way to start playing and getting to know other members.

Club Night: Thursdays 7:30pm – 10:00pm

Ladies’ Morning: Wednesdays 10:00am – 12:00pm

Men’s Morning: Sundays 10:00am – 12:00pm

Keep an eye on the Calendar or the weekly “Monkstown Snippets” for other social tennis events.
