The Senior Club would like to congratulate Adam Taylor, who recently won the Under 12 Singles Plate in the Carrigaline Open. The Annual Junior Open Tournament was held over the May Bank Holiday weekend at Carrigaline Tennis Club in Co. Cork. As always, the event was well supported and attracted a large entry with competitors travelling from all over Munster and also from Dublin. Each round was the best of 2 sets, with a championship tie-break (first to 10 points, win by 2) at 1-1.
Men’s Night at your local tennis club is every Tuesday night. This fun event is ably managed by Ray Harty. Ray joined the Causeway tennis club three years ago encouraged by his wife, Miriam. What he noticed was how hard it could be to get started and enjoy a regular game. From a chance conversation in the clubhouse with Cashel Corby one wet August day, complaining that whilst ladies had a morning nothing was offered for men - Mens Tuesday night was born.
In May, the InterFirms tournament is scheduled from Monday 13th until Saturday 18th. This is always a great week and a lovely introduction to the club. Teams come from all around the area and the rivalry can be fierce. The competition is for levels from 4 to 7 and teams will be matched accordingly, the emphasis on enjoyment.
We wish to congratulate Ger Cusack, having been selected to play for Munster in the Senior Interprovincial Championships. The venue for the event is Templeogue Tennis Club in Dublin and is due to run from May 17th-19th.
The Interprovincials is a weekend tournament held once a year where the best veteran players of each province meet and compete. Each team is made up of 12 men and 12 women, all play doubles. Each partnership plays each province, for a total of 3 matches. The team who wins the most matches carries the day.
The Causeway Tennis Club had a very successful Winter League campaign during the 2012/13 season. We would like to congratulate the team – Orla Hayes, Martina Beresford, Kevin Leech, Dave Mahony, Miriam Matthews, Paddy Kennedy, Darek Tobolski and Nial Herlihy.
