Mixed League - Class 2 team finishes third in their group

posted 9 Aug 2019, 04:48 by Philip Mulligan

The team lost 2-1 at home to Glenageary last Wednesday. That brings to an end another enjoyable Mixed league campaign for another year. We had one team competing this year and they finished 3rd in their group and just missed out on qualifying for the knockout stages. Many thanks to following players, Linda Murphy, Orla O'Connor Murphy, Laura Judge, Oisin Roe, Garrett Robinson, Johnny Kelly and subs Helen Maher, Fiona Kinch, Brendan Walsh & Ed Gibbons. Looking forward to next year when hopefully more teams can be entered.

Congratulations to Pat Rowley who won the class 5 Mixed Doubles in the Castleknock Open last weekend. This was on the back of her win a few weeks ago again in Class 5 Mixed Doubles in the Donnybrook Open. Well done to Pat and good luck to her as she goes for the hat trick along with Tara in the Ashbrook Open Ladies Doubles tonight.

Great Memories from days gone by

posted 15 Jul 2019, 13:22 by Philip Mulligan   [ updated 17 Jul 2019, 05:17 ]

Check out this footage from the past shot on cine camera. Special thanks to Jack O'Gorman for sharing it with us. The clips are from Championship Finals day in 1976 and probably the following year..You can see Liz, Rory and Gerry Greene in action. Liz and Gerry were Ladies and Men's Singles Champions in 1976. It was so cold that you can see some of the spectators with sleeping bags and were on pews salvaged from the old church which is now fruit world.  

There is a shot of the garden in front of the house before the extra courts were laid down and the whole complex realigned. The builders hut in the background was the unisex dressing rooms. The club was ahead of its time!


I am losing the audio track after 20 seconds in the conversion process but hopefully I'll sort it out in the next few days.

Great win in Mixed League Class 2 on Friday

posted 15 Jul 2019, 12:53 by Philip Mulligan

Great 3-0 win last Friday at home to Leopardstown. Three 3 set matches including two final set tiebreaks. Bit of the Djokovic mental strength and resilience coming into play there. Best of luck to the team next week.  

In the first round of matches the previous Friday the team lost 2-1 away to Deerpark. . 


Summer Mixed Doubles - Finals Day

posted 25 Jun 2019, 06:02 by Philip Mulligan

The final matches of the Mixed Doubles took place on Sunday followed by a BBQ, prize giving in the bar and a heavy downpour that thankfully we avoided. Great turnout on Sunday for the matches and the BBQ afterwards and there was a real buzz about the place.

Huge thank you to Sharon and Tara for cooking all the food for 50 people or thereabouts on the small BBQ and keeping it hot until it was served. Thanks to Anu for looking after the salads etc in the bar and doing all the preparation work upstairs. Big thank you to everyone who brought desserts and salads as we had loads of food to go around and we needed every bit of it.

Thanks to the 6 captains who managed the groups over the 3 weeks Tara, Colum, Aidan, Olive, Denis and Caroline. Thanks to the subs who came in on Sunday and throughout the tournament.

Finally thanks to everyone who played as it was a great turnout and so good to see so many new members taking part. As we said on Sunday we will organise another one in the Autumn.

Well done to all the winners in each group (prizes went to top male and female in each group). Peter and Tara, Giz and Nadine, Ed and Karen, John and Olive, Rory and Niamh and Colm and Cara.

And so to the final league table (note if points are equal it goes to whoever had the most wins without a sub):

Walking Group conquers Lugnaquilla

posted 12 Jun 2019, 08:45 by Philip Mulligan

The walking group conquered the highest mountain in Leinster last Saturday when we climbed Lugnaquilla. Great turnout of 21 and the weather was kind, well almost so we had a shower on the way down but the skies were clear as we climbed and at the top so we will take that any day. Check out the photos below. The next walk will be in July, date and venue still to be confirmed. Should have more details in the next few weeks.
