Last week’s edition of the Westmeath Independent had a comprehensive report on proposed plans for a link road and housing at Brawny. It also reported that Mr Barry Kehoe, Director of Services, Westmeath County Council, stated that a site has been identified for Athlone Tennis Club at the Regional Sports Centre. Further good news is expected early in the new-year.
Men’s Doubles Competition
It is planned to organise and run a men’s doubles winter competition starting Monday 2nd January and continuing every Monday until the start of the spring leagues in Mid-February. A large number of men compete every Monday and this league will add a more competitive edge to their weekly endeavours.
Teams will be arranged from the players who turn up on any given Monday and individual points will be awarded for attendance and for how many games won each night. Accumulation of points will determine the winners towards the end of February.
