1st social event of the year!!!

Our first ever Tennis, Pizza & Games night was a smashing success!   The evening was brilliantly organised by the captains Mags, Siobhan and Richie. A big thanks to everyone who came along on the night, it was a packed house. The sun was blazing on court; we couldn’t have picked a better day to kick off our first event.

The draw consisted of 2 groups with 16 players in each group, with a couple of super subs popping in when needed! There were 4 rounds of 5 games. Players arrived for warm up from 7pm, and play got underway at 7:40pm with super exciting tennis until 10:15pm.
For those not on the court, there were plenty of fun board games and some very competitive table tennis in the clubhouse. Outside, spectators were treated to extremely entertaining tennis on court!  Well done to all the players.

Group Winners:
Hamid Mustafa
Decklin O’ Driscoll
Maeve Kneeshaw

After a fantastic start to the year we look forward to equal success over the coming months, hope to see you all back.

Munster Winter League 2018

We would like to congratulate members of the Tralee Tennis Club who played extremely competitive tennis throughout their Munster Winter League and battled their way to the semi finals.

Our Mixed 2 Team had a tough and close battle with Nenagh and were 2-1 up going into the remaining two games but the Nenagh Team were very strong and won 3-2 overall. We would like to say a huge well done to James O’Brien, Timmy Hennessy, Sorcha Finnegan & Miriam Rohan. This is the first ever Grade 2 Team representing Tralee Tennis club in the Winter League so congratulations to all on that piece of history.

Our Ladies 4 Team came up against a very experienced and strong Bishopstown Team. With their home support the tennis was raised and despite playing close sets our Ladies’ were defeated on the day. The score bears no reflection on the hard battle the ladies fought. Well done Mags O’Grady, Gemma Lougheed, Nuala Finnegan & Siobhán O’Nualláin. They all fought very hard but unfortunately didn’t make it to the finals.

Tralee was represented fantastically in the Munster Winter League, well done everyone. We look forward to the Summer Cup where we hope to do as well if not better!
