Hello new members!

Your Sandycove Tennis Club Captains and Coaches are very conscious that you have not experienced the traditional warm Sandycove welcome due to the ongoing restrictions as a result of Covid-19. We just wanted to reach out and introduce ourselves, to welcome you and to remind you of a few housekeeping tips to help you get started in our lovely club.

If you have a moment to watch this little clip you’ll get a feel for who is who; and hopefully be able to put some faces to the names you will hear about in Club communications.

Below are a few tips to help you navigate our club in the short term, and we hope to reach out to you again in the New Year to encourage you to join a member of the committee on court for a knock up and ‘hello’, and hopefully then we can link you in with some members that you might enjoy a game with!

· Court booking: Courts become available at 9pm of an evening, for 7 days in advance. If the slot you desire is booked out, try the ‘watch’ button – you will receive an alert if a court frees up

· Clubhouse entry: you’ll need your fob to enter the first door, and a code (1886) for the inner door. The toilet is unlocked (one person at a time at the moment please!), the dressing room, not available at the moment.

· Lights: The evening flood lights are currently being gifted to us a gesture and a Covid safety measure until Christmas. Ordinarily you need two tokens for an hour’s game. Each token is €2 and can be purchased in the club house, machine in the corridor downstairs. Place tokens then in the numbered box for the court you have booked on the opposite wall.

· Coaching enquiries: you will ‘meet’ the coaching team on the short video attached – if you are interested in coaching for you or your family you can email Aine at aineleonardtennis@gmail.com

Welcome again, any queries please feel free to contact us,
