Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower – Albert Camus
Our 1st team of Alison Moore (Captain), Avril Gilham, Aoife Morgan and Katie Cassidy were narrowly beaten 2-1 against Navan in the semi-finals of the Floodlight team. The display of the tennis on the night was certainly worthy of a place in the final! This team is now promoted to Class 2 next year. Our 2nd team of Caroline Pfeifer (Captain), Janice Roche, Heidi Jackson,, Jin-su Connolly-Brady, Mary O'Grady (sub) and Eunice Chapman (sub) played away to Navan and were again narrowly beaten. This team will also be promoted to class 4 next year. Well done girls this was a fantastic achievement for the our club.
Congratulations to our Ladies' 1st team on winning the final of the DLTC Ladies’ Senior League Class 3. Captain Yvonne Walsh and her team of Susan Wilson, Alison Moore, Heidi Jackson, Maria Dowling & Avril Gilham brought home another royal blue pennant for our Club House. The finals were held at Donnybrook Lawn Tennis Club on Sunday 20th October in front of a great crowd of supporters from Shankill who created a great atmosphere. It was great to see team mate Claire O'Reilly at the finals and the whole Club wish her a speedy recovery. Well done girls!
