Men's Tennis

The Men’s Tennis programme in Castleknock Lawn Tennis Club is comprehensive in providing play of a social and competitive nature for all our members. We have appointed Men’s Tennis Coordinators to look after each of the areas involved:

Social Tennis: Adrian Brannigan & Billy King
Competitions: Eamonn Byrne
Leagues: Phelim Kelly

These volunteers are your first port of call for any queries relating to each area, but you can always contact the Men’s Captain or anyone on the committee and we will assist you in finding a tennis home in CLTC.

Social Tennis: The Men’s Wednesday Night Tennis (doubles) runs for most of the year and is an enjoyable way of meeting fellow members and getting matches to play. While they run year-round there are three separate components: Team Tennis (January through February), Social Wednesday (March through May) and The Matt Russell Cup (September through December). The cost is €5 per person per night (€25 once off per person for the team tennis event). Members are requested to sign on the for these events using the sign on sheets on the web site and all grades are catered for. The Team Tennis event is slightly different as a team aspect is added. However, like the Wednesday nights all levels are catered for. Even if you do not have a regular partner we can assist in getting you one. All Social Tennis events always finish up with a final night with a prize giving evening.

The ladies have social tennis on Wednesday mornings and Thursday evening at 8pm. There is also a ladies team tennis event that runs between January and February on Thursday nights.

 

Competitions: We have 3 main Championships throughout the year which are open to players of all levels. Play consists of singles, doubles and mixed competitions. Partners can be requested if required. Please check the calendar, club newsletter and club website for exact dates. Closing dates for entry are generally 2 weeks in advance.
