It’s true…… The dome is back

The Dome is up again.  This wonderful facility, the envy of many clubs, allows us to have year round tennis in all weather conditions.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who turned up last Saturday to erect the Dome.  Volunteers were ably led by Shane, Padraig and Justin.   Some of our junior boys came out to help for the first time, thank you lads.  We started at 9am and thanks to the large numbers, the Dome was up and ready for use by 4pm. To keep us going Liz and Damien supplied us with cakes and tarts.

This year will be pushing the motto “COMPLETE TO COMPETE” again as we now have record number of children playing the game at all levels. Throughout the coaching year we will put on a series of one day tournaments, internal leagues, Phoenix tournaments and Open tournaments. It is important that you sign up for these. The main aim of the programme will be to get kids to play the game and to be able to serve rally and score! In a couple of weeks we will send through all the competitions for the next year with the links and how to enter. Some of the links will not be live yet but will be good to get them in the calendar

As term one progresses and we see other groups that need to be developed based on the standard of the kids we will advertise those to the relevant kids and parents.

Looking forward to another stellar year in tennis!!

 

Yours,

Naas LTC Coaching Team
