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.
Returning this Saturday - 11th July.
Please email your child’s name to email@example.com if interested. Numbers are limited to 20. As you can understand, we cannot accommodate just turning up on the day as children’s names must be attributed to a court for contact tracing purposes.
It is hoped to bring back an older group (age13+) on the 18th July from 4.30-6pm.
There is a special hitting practice planned for Thursday 9th July at 8pm for those aged 16+ (Students etc.) Again, numbers are limited to 20 so please email your name to firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
More news will follow later in the week with regards to Tennis Camps and Competitions etc.
I hope you are all keeping safe and well! You may have seen a few communications about finally getting back to play some Tennis, so we wanted to highlight some of the main changes that will be relevant to our Juniors:
