Munster Tennis have rescheduled the 2020 Summer Cup Finals for the weekend of 26th and 27th of June.

Best of luck to both teams (FionaG, SiobhanD, KasiaG and Fionnuala O’D) and (SusanW, ShannonR, LisaR and Maria O’R). No word on if spectators will be allowed to attend.
We are going to hold both a Men’s and Ladies American doubles events for the next 2 Sundays in June. A great opportunity to learn and practice the new fast four format and to play with different partners. First up are the Men next Sunday (6th) at 10am-12pm. Booking now open on Ebooking. The Ladies event will be on the 13th June and will open for booking next weekend. Charge is 2 euro (for balls and small prizes).
