What a fabulous month for tennis!! The weather has been absolutely great and the long evenings are just perfect for a game.
Thanks to those of you who sent me pictures and updates……and my usual appeal for material (photos, reports etc.) to make the updates as interesting as possible. Please take pictures at club events, league matches etc. and send them to me.
As usual, my wonderful Ladies Tennis Team have done great work and all of us are available to answer any queries or take suggestions.
Clare Byrne (Ladies Captain)
We had a great Summer League campaign. 5 of the 7 teams got through to the playoffs. 2 of these (Castleknock 3 and Castleknock 6) made it through to the semi-finals. Both teams lost out narrowly, with the deciding match lost in close 3-setters.
Many thanks to all of the team captains (Éadaoin, Lana, Alana, Olive, Aisling, Nuala and Deirdre) for all of your hard work!
We have entered 6 teams into Mixed League. Matches are on Friday nights and the schedule is available below, so if you are free on a Friday evening please come and support your teams.
Details and progress of teams (I’ll try and update it each week) will be available here.
Mixed Team Tennis
Thanks to everyone who helped out on the tournament desk and to all who played in the event.
The Prize Giving party was on Friday 22 June in Brady’s. Many thanks to Frank Branigan for organising a great night.
Line Tennis is now underway. This is a new event introduced this year. It replaces the ‘line’ element of the old Team Tennis. Six doubles pairings play each other over 5 weeks. We had a great entry, 92 players, for a Summer competition. I hope you all enjoy it!!
Ladies Thursday nights
Ladies Thursday Nights is continuing during the Summer on a casual basis. There is a rota for organising the night and thanks to all of those helping out. There will a break from 6 July to 9 August as Line Tennis is taking place on Thursday nights.
Ladies Wednesday mornings
Ladies Wednesday Morning tennis is continuing over the Summer. Many thanks to Catherine Tobin for organising this.
