Message from the Club President

Message from the Club President


 On behalf of the Committee and Junior Committee, we would like to wish each of our members a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year! 

 Just a few housekeeping notices: 

The Club undertook an extensive and exhaustive housekeeping exercise to tidy up our membership database, revise and update our court rules, refine our finance procedures and establish new analytics to help the Committee to plan ahead. My sincere thanks to Andrew Synnott, Club Treasurer, who tirelessly worked on the above together with Kieran O’Donoghue who worked his magic to provide superb club analysis information. We look forward to sharing this with you together with an overview of the Club at the AGM which will take place on Tuesday 25th February, 2020 and will be presented on our big screen! 

 Subscription notices will be sent out in early January and we would ask all members to pay their subs online   by 31st January, 2020. The Club is totally reliant on our subscriptions and it causes excess pressure on the Office to constantly send reminders. 

 The Office has sent out notification of Club/Office opening hours over the Christmas break and they are also on the Club Website Calendar.   Our new office hours starting Wednesday, 2nd January 2020 will be 11.30am - 18.30pm.

A questionnaire asking for feedback from our new members will  be sent out shortly.  As always, we welcome all feedback, good or bad but we ask that it is sent by e-mail rather than in person to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 Lastly, I would like to thank the wonderful Club Committee that includes Andrew Synnott (Treasurer), Barry Costello (Hon Secretary), Ian Hemmingway (Men’s Captain), Edel Boxwell (Junior Secretary),  Kieran O’Donoghue (Club Analysis), Cathal Stanley, Kate Butler, Ed Hanlon and in particular Bryan O’Rourke who has been a huge support to the committee as a whole in addition to myself. 

The Junior Committee of Edel Boxwell, Anna Sargent, Helen Wilkinson, Ger O’Flaherty and Jenny O’Reilly assisted by Dee,  Anita and Owen Casey are the reason that our junior membership is now thriving. 

Our Club is a better place with these hardworking people in it and my thanks to them from all of the members! 

 See you all in 2020 if not before and remember that Santa is watching ... don’t forget your whites!!

 Yours in tennis
