You may be relieved to read that this is my last missive as Men’s captain! It has been fun along the way. I hope you enjoyed your tennis & that the club has provided you with the opportunity to get more involved be it socially or representing the club in competition.
Special mention to all the team captains over the two years. It is appreciated. Thank you. I would also like to thank the club’s head coach Derek Healy &Tim Eaton for their council & suggestions which was always productive & to be welcomed. Derek & Tim have a wealth of experience which helped me assess & implement my duties in a holistic fashion.
I am sure you all join me in wishing David Heffernan every success as our next Men’s Captain. The future of men’s tennis is in good hands as the club enters a new exciting chapter in its development.
1. EASTER CUP 2014
Two teams are entered for this annual fun, yet competitive, competition which takes place on Saturday mornings in March & April. The club has won this competition in 2012 & 2013....so a hat trick is the goal for 2014!
To develop & expand the Easter Cup Competition we now have 16 teams participating in this year's competition. Carrickmines will participate in this year's competition along with St.Mary's & Stratford who joined the ranks last year. It bodes well for the competition to have these clubs involved.
2. SUMMER LEAGUE 2014
The club has entered 6 teams for the DLTC Summer League which commences on the 9th
May 2014.It is important to place your name on the club notice board. Competition will be hot for places this year! Each team requires 3 singles players & 2 doubles partnerships.
3. TEAM TRAINING
Sunday afternoon training [12.00-14.00 hours] has resumed. The experience to date has been positive & productive with both senior & junior players engaging in this useful exercise. The future success of Men’s tennis in the club will be secured by the integration of the juniors along
with new membership of players of an intermediate standard.
