Ladies Tennis Update

Home / Adult Members / Ladies Tennis Update

Welcome to the first ladies tennis update of the year. I hope to produce an update once a month with all the latest news and events for ladies tennis in the club. We really need 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

I have a wonderful Ladies Tennis Team who provide me with help and support in organising tennis for you all. Please contact any of us if you have any queries or suggestions

Clare Byrne (Ladies Captain)

Team Tennis

The Ladies Team Tennis finished last Thursday. Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up.

Thanks  a million to:

  • all of the Team Tennis captains,
  • to all who helped on the tournament desk,
  • to those who helped people find the way into the car park and club on the week of the move,

and a special thanks to Mary Mulherin who organised the desk, manned it every week and managed the money!

The Team Tennis Party is in Luttrelstown Golf Club on Friday 16th February. Details here

We really need your feedback as we had a new format and a new party venue. Please take the time (less than 10 minutes) to complete the survey.

Ladies Wednesday mornings

The Wednesday mornings have been continuing despite some pretty miserable weather. Thanks to Fiona McDermott and Noreen Kelly for all of their hard work running it.

There will be no Wednesday morning tennis on Easter week – 4th April.

The final date on 30th May will include fun tennis and a party. 8 mornings are required to qualify for a prize.

Ladies Thursday nights

Thursday night tennis will recommence on 22nd February and run until 24th May. There will be a break of 2 weeks during the Spring Championships (12th, 19th April).

Thanks to Brenda O’Connell and Sue Spencer for organising the Thursday nights.

Box Tennis

The new web site includes online box leagues. Your score can now be entered online and full details of all matches and standings are available here. Details of how to use the box league system are in section 5 of the Club Manager 365 User Guide.

The next round of the Doubles box is up and running. Please play your matches by 31 March.

The next round of the Singles box will start next Monday (19 February). Please let Helen Mohan know if you want to be added by Friday 16 February.

Thanks a million Helen for all of your work keeping the boxes running.

Friday Night Mixed

Friday night mixed is back on Friday 23 February for 6 weeks. The Sign On sheet will open on Tuesday mornings at 10am. Numbers are limited to 16 ladies so get in early!

Cost is  €3 per night and there will be cheese and crackers and a prize for the best lady / man in the bar afterwards.

Thanks to Valerie Bowens who is going to run this with one of the men’s committee.


Winter League

After a rocky start, Winter League is now going well. Details for all of our ladies teams are available here. Details include fixtures for each team so if you’re around on a Sunday afternoon at 2pm, why not come down to support your fellow members? The bar is open on Sunday afternoons too.

Thanks to the league team captains for all of your hard work and to all of the players who go out every Sunday to represent the club.

Monday Morning Friendly League

This is a league for players who don’t play in the DLTC leagues and will start after Easter.

Thanks to Liz O’Donnell for organising. Please contact Liz if you would like to play in this league.

Group Coaching Sessions

We hope to arrange group coaching sessions for ladies. This is in the early stages of planning but keep an eye on the News section of the site for updates.
