Club Championships

We are planning to run the club championships next week, starting on Monday 31st August. Entry forms in hallway or enter online via tournament planner. Good luck to all who are playing in the Larkspur doubles this week.

Castleview Open Week and Ballypatrick Competitions.

Wednesday Open Americans

Eugene Cooney is again organising Open American Tournaments for members and visitors over the next number of weeks. There were 12 entries last week, he is hoping to see an increase this week.

Juniors. After all the junior competitions and camps, there is a quantity of unclaimed tracksuits etc, these are located in hallway, if gear is not collected by Sept 1st, it will be donated to the Cancer Care shop.

Multisports Camp

Thanks to all the volunteers (circa 15 to 20 people over the 3 days) who gave of their time to ensure that the multisports camp was a great success, we had 70 children aged from 6 to 12 with various levels of skill and experience in tennis, pitch and putt, badminton, skittles, table tennis and handball, we hope they enjoyed their time in Hillview. Also we were grateful to Freda O'Hanrahan for providing the lovely food and desserts to keep us going every day.

Pitch and Putt

After the summer practise sessions, we recently had a Juvenile Competition to Hillview after too long an absence. To celebrate this special day, and rather than giving out the usual first second and third prizes, it was decided that all players who entered would receive prizes. We were able to do this because of the generous sponsorship received from former club members, James Cleary, Conor Fleming and Joe Hickey. Gentlemen thank you from all in Hillview for your support. A total of 15 boys and girls took part, we thank them and of course the Mums and Dads who supplied the taxi service. At the presentation of prizes in the clubhouse the President Seamus O'Doherty thanked all who had helped make an enjoyable day possible.

Ely Centra Competition. This basically gross competition was run on Sunday Aug 16, despite a number of counter attractions the competition was well supported.  After a long days play the results were as follows with both ladies and Gents grades being won by just one shot.

Ladies ; Gross winner - Laura O' Hanrahan, 2nd Gross - Kathleen Shanley, Nett winner - Nora Whelan

Gents :   Gross winner - John Fitzgerald, 2nd Gross - Noel Joyce, Nett winner - David Cahill

Our thanks to Ely Centra for their generous support

Tuesday Scramble: The latest scramble was played on Tuesday Aug 18. Again we had a cracking turnout and some hot scoring. The hottest score came from the trio of Mary Maloney, Norman Rankin and Michael Kennedy. The runners-up were the  trio of Veronica Anglim, John Cooney and John Fitzgerald. The gross prize went to the team of Seanie O'Connor, Pat Crowe and Paddy O'Hanrahan.
