The County Kildare Junior Open Tennis Championships Under 9/Under 11 will take place Friday October 26th @ 3.30pm to Monday 29th October.
We would like to see as many entrants as possible from our own club in what should prove to be a very exciting and fun event!
Please note entries are limited in all sections.
On line registration is now available via the Tennis Ireland site on this link
This is the first of what will hopefully be many ‘Junior Captains Blog’ posts, which aim to keep juniors in touch with what is going on in the club. We hope to use this blog to update you regularly on upcoming events, junior issues and junior news.
The first event we hope to run is ‘Teenage Social Tennis’ which will be on Fridays from 18:15 to 20:00, starting this Friday 28th of September. This night is for all juniors currently in secondary school. The night will involve an hour of Cardio Type Tennis, run by Janeen with pizza in the Junior Clubhouse afterwards. Hopefully juniors can use the night to have fun and meet up with other teenagers. The night will cost €3 per teenager (to cover the lights and your pizza!).
All you have to do is sign up online here before Friday.
That’s all for now, hope to see ye all on Friday.
Janeen and Kevin
