The courts have been cleaned and the difference is undeniable. One can feel the bristles of the carpet under foot! And pooling - what pooling? - Even after a deluge of rain, the courts drain within minutes.

Two Summer Cup matches took place a fortnight ago, first up was the second round grade 3 mixed away at Carrigaline Tennis Club in Cork on Tuesday 23rd July. The team comprised of Martina Beresford, Orla Hayes, Ger Cusack and Brendan O’Hara.
The very next day, the next Summer Cup team was back on the Cork road - this time to Crosshaven. It was the turn of the grade 4 ladies, and Orla Hayes and Martina Beresford were again part of the team, this time joined by Margaret Cusack and Bernadette Sheridan. As Martina couldn’t play, still nursing her sprained ankle, Margaret Browne subbed.
The Senior Club would yet again like to congratulate Adam Taylor, for his recent successes. The Bishopstown Junior Open Tournament ran from July 7th - 21st. As always, the event was well supported and attracted a large entry with competitors travelling from all over Munster and also from Leinster
Adam entered in the Under 12 Boys Singles and had a tough first round draw against the 2nd seed; he was beaten and entered into the Plate. He had 2 matches to get to the final, where he won very decisively.
