Dear Members,

What a summer!
The summer of 2018 will be remembered as one of the greats! We had those weeks of glorious sunny weather which got even the faintest hearted out on court. In July we had an exciting handicaps competition, a great junior programme and now we have the grand finale – the Championships Competition, which runs from 20 August, culminating in a celebratory dinner, hosted by our neighbours at the National Yacht Club, on the 1st September.

Come along to watch great tennis
Support on the balcony for the Championships matches is always is always welcome and this year is no exception. With our newly decorated bar and clubhouse we look forward to strong support and good fun each evening, especially in the second week, from Monday 27th. Don’t forget that you can see the schedule of play on – 2018 Senior Championships Draw

Bring some light bites for players and supporters
It is a long standing tradition in our club that members bring some nibbles for players and supporters on the balcony, so we would like to ask members to bring along a plate of sandwiches or bite size nibbles, like cocktail sausages.
We would like to raise a challenge to the male members this year to step up to this particular plate! And if you are supporting a family member who is playing, please bring something for the players to share. The “Domestic Goddess” team will be on hand to serve and organise the kitchen – so just hand your offering in to the kitchen when you come down.

And round the week off in style at the NYC!
On the 1st of September we will be celebrating the end of the Championships with a celebratory dinner at the National Yacht Club. The evening will kick off with a prosecco reception, followed by dinner, presentation of prizes and music and dancing.
Tickets are €40 each and are now available from the bar, the office, Valerie, Jenny, or online at
Eventbrite – Book Tickets

If you want to be seated with friends, please nominate one person of your group to liaise with Valerie on 0876443000, so that we can arrange the seating accordingly. We will do our best to accommodate table requests, and the earlier you contact Valerie and buy the tickets the better chance you will have. Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Looking forward to seeing you on the court or the balcony, and at the dinner,

Valerie Judge
Social Co-ordinator.
