The Tournaments committee are in the process of organising these leagues. The competitions will be run off by September 2nd followed by the club championships.
Mondays: Men’s Summer Doubles League
Our men's doubles competition, after a very pleasant spell, was suddenly interrupted by a return to traditional Irish summer weather last Monday. After seven completed rounds it will resume this Monday, the leading players are Marek Rose, Sai Palada and Dave Costello.
Wednesdays Ladies Night
There was a no show for the ladies last Wednesday due to the inclement conditions, all members are welcome to participate from 7.30 this week.
Thursdays & Sundays: Mixed Doubles
The weather cleared up for Thursday’s mixed doubles and consequently there was a full complement on the four courts. Among the competitive duos were Stephane and Cathal Kenny, Noreen Reidy and Kieran Mc Carthy, Claire Reidy and Dave Costello, Mary Jo O’ Farrell and Sai Palada, Evgenyia Yurchenko and Marek Rose, Lola Fernandez Palos and Jan Groenendijk, Jacinta Digby and Puneet Nayyer.
Loretto Lee, Lola Fernandez Palos, Dave Costello and Marek Rose enjoyed close set matches with lots of rallies, lobs and smashes from 11 to 1pm Sunday morning last.
