28 Jun 50th South of Ireland Junior Open
Limerick Lawn Tennis Club will celebrate a half century of its annual Junior Open South of Ireland Championships when the 2009 renewal, generously sponsored by Coca-Cola, commences on June 28th on the Ennis Road. The July 27, 1959 edition of the Limerick Leader reports that “The first ever Limerick Boys and Girls Open Tennis Championships concluded on a very successful note at the Limerick L.T.C. Grounds, Ennis Road, in warm, brilliant sunshine.” “The Committee are to be congratulated for arranging such a fixture which, we understand, will now be held in future years.”
Now 50 years on, the Junior Committee is looking forward to a renewal of the same warm, brilliant sunshine in which to host 28 events and a wide choice of fun and social events for junior players from U/8 to 18 from across the country during the very popular annual Open Week. Full entry details are available from the Club website www.lltc.ie or this can be downloaded below. The closing date for entries is Monday June 22nd at 6pm.
