Our Senior Open commenced Sunday 8th and will run all week with the finals to be played Sunday next. Open referee Lisa will enjoy an easier week this year as the persistent good weather is to continue, wet weather is the bane of every tennis competition organiser.

Club nights are cancelled this week as our open competition takes pride of place. Harry O’ Rourke and Pat Conway were the winners last Monday. Joan Conway and Mary Jo O’ Farrell were very consistent and competitive during the ladies session Tuesday evening last. The largest number of competitors, so far this year, were in action last Thursday. It was more convenient to have two competitions with the Jacinta Digby/P J O’ Reilly and Sarah Seoige /Dave Costello partnerships winning their respective events.
