Winter League Phase 1 - Update
A really great days tennis played out last Sunday in great weather. Our Grade 3’s topped their group with a 5-0 win and are now into the knockout stages. Our Grade 2’s narrowly lost to Crosshaven and need a big win next Sunday to go through. And our Grade 4’s picked up their first win against St Anne’s despite a few sore heads. The support was felt and greatly appreciated by all Teams. Thank you!
Fixtures for this coming Sunday: Grade 4’s at home to Sunday's Well at 12 noon and Grade 2’s at home to Douglas at 2pm.
Winter League Phase 2
Munster Tennis have announced the rules for Phase 2 WL. The teams from Carrigaline Tennis Club will be announced later this week or Monday at the very latest.
The Selection Committee have decided to request names for Winter League phase 2 which starts in January. The reason for this is to allow good time to pick the teams and allow for teams to practice.
Phase 2 is Men’s and Ladies teams.
If you wish to enter, please email email@example.com before Saturday 23rd October at 8pm..
If you wish to specify a partner you may do so but we can’t guarantee you will end up on the same team.
Entry is now closed for WL Phase 1. However, we have a shortage of players in some grades. If we don’t get any more participants than we may not be able to field teams in those grades.
What’s needed is - Grade 4 Men’s Singles; Grade 5 Ladies Singles; Grade 6 Ladies Mixed Doubles/Ladies Doubles partner
If you are interested in playing in any of those grades, please email -
firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 5th October at 6pm.
This Sunday evening, Sunday 13th December, we are holding a practice session for Winter League Teams/ Summer Cup Teams or anyone who fancies a competitive practice game. As the forecast is bad for early part of the day, we have 2 late evening sessions: Grades 4 & 5 at 6pm and then Grades 2, 3 & 6 at 7.30pm. Just go online and book in your name. There is a cost of 3 Euro to cover cost of new tennis balls. A warm beverage is also on offer afterwards.
