Hi Juniors!!!

  • Calling all teenagers!!! Term 3 of Teenage Social Tennis will start on Friday the 11th of January at 18:15. The past two terms were well attended and we hope to see a great turnout this term. It costs €3 (to cover lights and pizza) and all you need to bring is a racket. If it is your first time attending please sign up here.
  • Along with the Junior Committee, we have decided that the Junior Clubhouse is in need of a new fit out!!! We have been given the opportunity to put together a convincing proposal to purchase much needed furnishings. We feel that at the moment the Junior Clubhouse is not used to its full potential. We believe that new furnishings will allow the Junior Clubhouse to become a social area that all juniors in the club can use on a regular basis.  If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see in your Junior Clubhouse make sure and talk to either Janeen or myself as we are open to all ideas!!! We will have a further blog post at a later date with details about when exactly the Junior Clubhouse will be open and the rules that juniors will have to agree to when using the Junior Clubhouse.
  • A belated congratulations to Conor McCabe, Adebola Obasoto, Marie-Perla Biansumba, Eimear Maher, Rachael Collins, Cora Moloney, Eimear O’Neill, Megan Campion and Janeen Laabei who all qualified for the National Winter Matchplays before Christmas. Especially to Conor McCabe who made the U12 Boys Final and Eimear Maher who won the U14 Girls Final!!!
  • Congratulations to all our juniors who participated in the Wilson National Indoors 2013. Especially to Eimear Maher who made the U14 Girls Final and to Conor McCabe who won the U12 Boys Final!!!
  • Finally, good luck to all our juniors who will be playing on Senior Winter League Teams in the coming weeks. I’m sure the seniors will agree that you bring a new energy to the senior ranks 😉

Until next time,

Your Junior Captains
