Junior Club Championships
The junior club championships finals, sponsored by Temple Print, were completed last Sunday in ideal weather conditions. Parents and spectators were treated to a very high standard of competitive tennis from our junior members from ages 10 to under 16. After three hours of very enjoyable tennis the winners were presented with their cups and trophies while all the runners up also were happy with their plaques. The club expresses its gratitude to junior coach and organiser, Lisa Brennan, on the efficient running of the preliminary rounds and the finals also. Club officers wish to thank Ciaran Temple for his continued generous sponsorship of our junior club championships.
