Seniors Ladder news

Hello folks,

The ladder is back! There are still a couple of days to play the outstanding matches – the new schedule will be published on Mon 1st October.

Please read the News:

1) New rule (time saving for the organiser): if your result box is not filled at the end of the month either with score or walkover, unfortunately I’ll have to automatically remove you from the tournament

2) New doubles ladder: new doubles ladder potentially starting Oct 1st. 2 matches per month.

3) I’ve been getting good feedback for this tournament: nice to hear but if you have any issues please don’t hesitate to let me know. 🙂

4) New suggestion: if you can’t play for only 1 month, give walkovers but stay in the ladder. If you can’t play for longer, please opt out – you’ll get your position back (more or less) when you want to join again.

5) Now it’s the time for you to let me know if you want to drop out of the ladder.

Senior Coaching €100 voucher

To all members,

The new club coaching committee, in tandem with the senior coaching sub- committee, are anxious to deliver a club organised coaching program this year that meets the needs of our members.

The response to the survey last year was extremely poor from our premier, 1st, 2nd & 3rd class DLTC players, this resulted in little or no club organised coaching for these players. We would therefore encourage you to participate in this short survey (it will only take 3 minutes approx).

The survey is structured to ascertain three main objectives:

1. What type of coaching would you like?
2. When during the week would you like it to take place?
3. With what coach would you like to run the coaching session?

While we cannot guarantee that we can deliver to every member on each of these preferences, your answers will help us formulate a program that delivers on as many of them as possible.

It is our intention to commence with the senior coaching program at the beginning of October (after the club championships & DLTC senior leagues are coming to an end).

Please complete the survey by Friday 14th of September. Each respondent will be entered into a draw for a €100 coaching voucher which can be redeemed against any of the club organised senior coaching programs.

Thanking you in advance:

Your ‘Senior Coaching Sub-Committee’

Caroline Phelan, David Doyle, John Clancy & Ronan Ryle

and, the

The ‘Club coaching sub-committee’ whose members are Olivia Allen (Committee Chairperson), Linda Lawlor, Breffini Carpenter, Alastair Wallace, John Clancy & Ronan Ryle.
