Unfortunately, the two remaining Teams bowed out of the competition yesterday. The Grade 6 Mixed Team lost agonisingly in super doubles whilst the Grade 3 Mixed Team went down fighting to a very strong Lower Aghada.
Great support on the day from club members and well done to all the Captains for the effort they put in.
The Mixed 3’s travelled to Rushbrooke last Sunday and came away with a great 3-1 victory. Well done to Siobhan (now a grade 2 player!), Fiona, Donal and Andrew.
The are now two Teams in the Semi-Finals. The Mixed 3 Team will play Lower Aghada on Sunday 22nd Aug at Home at 2pm provisionally. The Mixed 6 Team will travel to Dromahane on the same day.
Mixed results yesterday. Hard luck to Sylvia’s Grade 5 Ladies team who went down 3-1 to Larkspur. Some very close 3 setters didn’t go their way.
Well done to Ken’s Grade 6 Mixed who had a fab win against Garryduff and are through to the semi-finals.
Next Sunday our Grade 3's play Rushbrooke away. Good luck to Siobhan, Fiona, Donal and Andrew
Sunday 27th June 2021 was a very special day in Limerick for Carrigaline Tennis Club. Not only did we win the Summer Cup Grade 3 Ladies for the first time, but we also had 2 teams in the same final. It was such a shame so many of us who would have traveled were unable to witness the occasion.
The Club is very proud of both teams who played their hearts out from last June to the Final yesterday. Nothing could separate them in the end, and it was decided on a tie break in the super-doubles.
Unfortunately, there had to be a loser. But well done to Lisa, Maria, Shannon and Susan. And congrats to the Winners Fiona, Siobhan, Kasha and Fionnuala.
Well Done Girls!

Well done to both our Grade 3 ladies teams who have made it to the Semi-Finals which take place on 27th September 2020. The Purple Team (led by Fiona) did it the hard way in Super Doubles. The Yellow Team (led by Susan) had some tough games but came through also. Fantastic achievement by both. Commiserations to the Men's Teams who came up against some seriously good opposition.
