10 Year Anniversary Celebrations - 4th November 2023

What A Night……. 

A Few sore heads I’d imagine, we had a great turnout for our tournament that started the celebrations.
We had 3 teams finish up with less that 2 points between them. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner on the day and it was Liz Christy and her team that took home first place.
Well done to Liz and her teammates - Cheryl Casey,  Joy Keefe, Don Coughlan, Derval Walsh, Richard Walsh and Emily Lennon.
Thanks to everyone that made the effort to join in the celebrations and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves so much.

A Big Thank You to Donal, Louise and their teams who did trojan work in organising this very successful event. Not forgetting Maria who made a very special Celebration Cake.


The proposed schedule of events for the day would be to run a 10-year Anniversary Team Challenge Tournament from 1 to 4pm. 
Celebrations will kick off in the club house with Food served 5.30pm to 6.30pm. (€20 per ticket for food and will be available to purchase on easy payments)

Some members might not be aware, but the club is nearly 40 years in existence. A long history relates to the club from founding it to where we are now.
The 10-year event is marking the move from the old playing courts on the Carrigaline Gaa Grounds to the new facilities that we have now.
If any members would have any photographs that they could share we’d love to scan and upload to a create a slide show in the club house during the celebrations.
If you have any digital photos, please send to social@carrigalinetennisclub.com.
It would be great to share these memories on the night.
