Midland League Division 3
Athlone 1 have completed their series of matches and have won enough points to be in the quarter finals. They were beaten 1-3 by Birr Wilmer last week and by the weekend should know who their opponents will be.
Athlone 2 have yet to play Tullamore in their last match this Thursday and have already qualified for the play offs. A good result may be enough to be in the semi- final.
Alan Nugent and Kieran Mc Carthy played consistent steady tennis last Monday and these two new members are a great addition to our club activities.
On Tuesday Mary O’ Neill and Rose Costello were among the ladies who competed for two hours achieving an excellent workout.
Gertie O’ Rourke and Alex Ocsenas played in the mixed doubles last Thursday both bringing their inimitable tennis styles of play to bear on their opponents.
