TennisMunster Cups and South Tipperary Leagues
After the excitement of the RyanMotorPower Hillview Senior Open Week, last week was a time to recover. Next focus is inter club tennis, this year we have 4 teams entered in the Munster Cup competitions and 4 teams in the South Tipperary Leagues. We are pleased that we have teams entered in grades 5, 6 and ladies, the experience of going to other clubs to play competitive tennis should be a worthwhile experience. Also its great to go to Ballypatrick, where the catering is always 5 star quality. However, they were not so generous with the points, Michael Moroney and team lost 6 to 2. The Grade 2 team went to Aghada on Sunday, but after a series of tight matches, had to give best to the home team. The Grade 3 team are in action against Nenagh next Friday evening, come along and support.Junior Tennis
