Winter League Trials

Winter league trials continue this Sunday evening for those who have already put their names forward (including subs). For this trial only there is a fee of 3 Euro to facilitate the presence of coach GianMarco who will oversee the sessions. 
We’d ask that everyone who can attend have their name on the booking sheet (like last Sunday) 24 hours in advance so that the pairings can be worked out. 
If you need to pull out at the last minute, please find a sub in the same grade. Booking is now open.

Selection for Winter League Teams – Message from the Selection Committee

Thanks to all those who put their names forward for selection for Winter League.

Due to the fact that there were no Opens this year it’s been decided to try out a Trial based system for Winter League selection.

We’ve never done this before so please bear with us as we work on the finer details.

Trial Dates are as follows -

  • Sunday 20th September,
  • Sunday 27th September and then
  • Weekend of 3rd/4th October (Sat and Sunday)

Times for Sunday 20th September (1 hour long) are as follows -

6pm - Grades 3 & 6       7pm - Grade 5         8pm - Grade 4

The weekend Tournament on the 3rd / 4th October is the ‘Catherine Mulhare Memorial’ and is open to all members but we would encourage all those trying out for Winter League to make this event if possible.

It is hoped that players will try to play in at least 2 of the 3 Trials and will get to play with different partners.  If there is someone you would like to play with in one of the Trials, (we will try to facilitate), then email both names to:  selectioncommittee@carrigalinetennisclub.com

We need players to log into the ebookingOnline Court Booking System and put their name down on the Booking Sheet if attending this Sunday. It works same way as hitting practice. Just go to the booking software and click on “Winter League – Click to book” for your allocated time slot. There is no charge.

Thanks everyone and best of luck - Selection Committee 2020/2021

Winter League 2020 - Reminder

Final Reminder
It is assumed that Munster Tennis will run a Winter league competition this year. In order to know the level of interest we are asking those who wish to be considered for selection to submit their names before 14th September 8pm to selectioncommittee@carrigalinetennisclub.com. Details of the selection process will be sent to each member who has entered shortly. We are still working on how best to pick teams given the lack of Opens this year. 
For new members Winter League is a competition between different teams in Munster. Normally you will be committing to 3 matches before Christmas, and 3 after on Sundays. If your team qualifies, the knockout stages of the competition involve more matches. There will be home and away matches so some travel will be involved. You should receive a confirmation email when you send in your name.
