Juniors Leinster Tournament comes to Glenalbyn!

posted 1 Jun 2016, 13:14 by Philip Mulligan

A fantastic display of junior tennis took place in the Club last weekend when almost 50 boys and girls took part in the Leinster Glenablyn & Deerpark U14 Phoenix Tournament.  The two-day event brought players representing over 12 different clubs including Sutton, Wicklow, Naas and Donnybrook. Nine Glenalbyn boys participated - all doing very well, with 2 ending up as finalists - Hugh Larsen in Silver Cat 2 final and Hugo Hjelseth in God Cat 1 final.  Well done to all who participated, they did us proud!  

A big thank you to all those who helped over the 2 days with umpiring, score-keeping, tuck shop, etc. - it couldn't have run without your help!  And to those who helped prepare the club in the few weeks prior to Tournament - gardening, painting furniture and IT support, thank you also - the Club looked great for our guests. Special mention to Lesley for all her help, before and during the weekend.  We were also very grateful to have Julie-Anne Hudson from Leinster Tennis along for most of the weekend - again her support and help over the last few weeks was so much appreciated.  And finally, to Vhi SwiftCare Clinics - for sponsorship of prizes for the event.

Thanks again to everybody and well done boys!
