It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . . and what better way to celebrate with our wonderful Sandycove Tennis Club family than a spot of tennis and some mulled wine, mince pies and festive cheer!

Details: Fun Team Tennis, Mixed Doubles – teams will be selected by the Committee. Sunday, December 12th, 3-6pm. €5 entry fee, payable in cash on the day. Festive attire encouraged! Unfortunately the clubhouse will still be out of bounds and we will be restricted to socially distanced outdoor imbibing.

Spaces will be limited, unfortunately, to the first 48. Please send an email (with Turkey Tennis in the subject bar!) to

Christmas time is coming

The geese are getting fat

It’s time to grab your racket,

your Christmas jumper or a hat.

Drag yourself away

from your kitchen and the stove

For the Turkey Competition

in lovely Sandycove.

Join us all on Court

for some cracking Festive fun,

a mug of warming mulled wine

some mince pies or a bun.

Pop the date in your diary

Its the 12th of December

And look forward to celebrating

with your fellow club members

There’ll be wonderful prizes

for the tennis and the fashion

so be sure to dress to the nines

and play tennis with a passion!

The fun will all be outdoors

So we pray there’ll be no storm

Remember to bring a coat

and mulled wine will keep you warm!

We hope to see many there

and Merry Christmas to you all

from your Captains for the year
