Winter League - Ladies 3's

LOur ladies 3s will play their rescheduled match this Wednesday at 6pm. As usual all support welcomed. Last team standing so let’s cheer them on and hope to see them in a semifinal this weekend coming.

Winter League - Phase 2

Thanks to all Members that put their names forward for Winter League Phase 2.
Unfortunately, we won’t be entering teams in the next phase.
Munster tennis in the recent days updated their Munster Directory Rules 2023/2024
There have been quite considerable changes to the points allocations for winter league.
These changes were made after CTC had entered teams. We or other Clubs were not contacted to inform them of these considerable changes and no engagement was had with clubs during the process in deciding to enforce these changes.
As a committee we have decided not to support Munster tennis winter league in entering teams due to the handling of these changes.
I have been in talks with other clubs regarding invites to play Carrigaline teams after Xmas to enable our members to have some competitive tennis before the open season commences so more details on this to follow soon.

Winter League Results

Our last team standing will take on Clonakilty next Sunday, 7th January at home at 11am.
This is a quarter-final match and it would be great to get as much support as possible to cheer on our ladies - Antoinette, Kate, Linda and Maria.

Aoife’s WD4 also lost on the road to Sundays well 4 – 0 also in the 16.
