Carrigaline Junior Tennis Club has gone from strength to strength in recent years and offers a wide range of activities for kids from 6 to 18 years of age. The underage section is structured so that we can accommodate everyone from those who want fun games right up to competition and provincial squad level. We offer coaching sessions which are more relaxed and fun based aswell as our internal squads for those who want to progress in tennis through the tennis Ireland competition structure.
In 2019 we were honoured to be awarded an ITF international junior tennis event held in June of that year. We had 102 top players from all over the world competing in our club and this really put us on the map for Junior tennis. On the first week in April of this year, we will host our own category 2 Junior open event which will attract some of the best players from all over the country back to Carrigaline for what is sure to be some great tennis.
The Club requests that all Parents, with children in Junior Coaching Sessions, would familiarise themselves with the document below.

Well done to all our Juniors who took part the various competitions around the country in the last few weeks.
Congratulations to the following = Cian Power who won the U12 Singles event in the South East Leinster Open in early August and Romy Barry, who won the U12 Girls Singles in Tramore.
