Step 1
Create a Tennis Ireland tournament Profile (this is different to a DLTC profile). Simply log onto the website:

Tennis Ireland Tournament Profile and create (bottom left of the home page) your own unique profile and log in password. Do remember to enter ‘Gender’. Once registered you will receive a confirmation email together with your PIN number.

Step 2
Once registered and logged in, go to the ‘Tournaments Tab’ and enter Sandycove Junior Club Championships 2021 in the Search bar or use the link provided above. This will bring you to the Tournament online entry page where you enter the events that you wish to play in and in the case of doubles your partners name and PIN number. Should you not have a doubles partner the software will allow you request one. Note: there is no guarantee that you will be allocated a partner however the system will facilitate as many requests as possible and as numbers allow for.

Thank you
