Carrigaline Tennis Club have recently hosted another successful Junior Open Tournament event thanks to the generous sponsorship and continued partnership with main sponsor, Ballyseedy Café.
The Tournament, which attracted entries from across the country, offered both singles and doubles events for competitors ranging from U12 to U18 age groups. The club ran separate grade
tournaments at each age group to provide opportunities for all members to enter and compete. The quality of the tennis played over the course of the week was exceptional, with many top 10 ranked
players in the country competing.
We would like to congratulate all the Carrigaline club members that competed in the tournament, particularly David Cotter who reached the U18 doubles final. You have all been fantastic ambassadors for the club and we are delighted to see all that training pay off.
The club thanks Cian Blake, Ken Murphy and all of the junior committee for organizing the event.
We thank all of the club members, parents and coaches who volunteered their time during the tournament week, to help with court supervision and kitchen duties. We are also grateful to event
partners Laya Healthcare and CO-OP Superstores Carrigaline for their support. Finally, we wish all of our juniors the best of luck during the Summer tournament season.

Carrigaline Tennis Club is delighted to announce Ballyseedy Café as the title sponsor of the upcoming Junior European Tour running from the 16th to 22nd of July 2022.
This event will see some of Europe’s top U14 players compete at Carrigaline Tennis Club for the club’s first ever Tennis Europe event. A host of former world No.1s, including Graf, Seles, Becker, Edberg, Lendl, all displayed their talents to an international audience for the first time on the European circuit, proving that the tour really does provide an opportunity to see the stars of tomorrow today. Carrigaline Tennis Club is extremely proud and excited to be able to witness such calibre of young tennis players converging on the Club in the coming weeks.
In addition to Ballyseedy’s sponsorship, Carrigaline Tennis Club is extremely grateful to two local companies who have come on board as associate sponsors. Michael Pigott Auctioneers and Ahern Roberts O’Rourke Williams & Partners Solicitors. It is with the support of local businesses that such a high profile tennis event can take place in Carrigaline.
We are incredibly grateful to Laya Healthcare and to Dairygold Co-Op Superstores for continuing their sponsorship of our Junior Open for the second year running. Without support from such companies, it would not be possible to run such a high profile tournament which attracted many of Ireland’s top ranked junior players this year. We were also delighted to see such a large number of younger players entering the u8/u9/u10 age group of the tournament which highlights the growing interest in tennis as well as showcasing emerging talent!Winners
