Munster Summer Cup:
Ulrik Nyberg and his squad of Grade 5 players (Justin Foley, Anne Marie Moroney and Kathleen McGrath) set off for Limerick lawn last Monday to meet a very strong home side. The decider was a super mixed to decide who went through. Limerick won by a narrow margin. The club Grade 4 ladies team, captained by Teresa Drohan takes on Lower Aghada on the 17th July- best of luck.
Senior Open Circuit:
Nuala Smith headed to Kilkenny last week and with Aoife Murphy lifted the ladies grade 3 doubles, while Eugene Fogarty joined up with Pat Brett of Kilkenny to loose in the men’s doubles grade 3. Martin Ormond joined forces with Dick McCarthy to take the Premier men’s doubles. Well done to all and keep on trucking. Meanwhile over in Wimbledon Mary & George Barry were making their first appearance on centre court, as seen on TV! Well done Mary, we always knew you could reach these dizzy heights, with a little help from George.
We will give it another go next Friday 8th of July at 7.30, let’s B there! Again we would love to see you out in force for an easy evening of tennis. Do bring a friend along and we would also welcome other green fee paying players who might like to sample the tennis at Hillview. Beginners and more experienced players are all welcome.
As we are gathering to give Simon Simecek a send off next Friday in the Clubhouse at around 9pm, all are invited to drop by.
