27 Jun Castlebar Tennis Club Festival of Tennis
Castlebar Tennis Club Festival of Tennis
A major innovation is being initiated at Castlebar Tennis Club with the launch of a “Festival of Tennis” which is being organised from now until the end of June.
This will commence at the spanking new state of the art facilities, situated beside Lough Lannagh, where it will be officially opened by Mr. John Tracey – Irish Sports Council.
As part of this “Festival of Tennis”, an Inter-Firms league over the next three weeks is being organised. A large number of firms, comprising both local and regional companies, along with other places of employment, have each formed a team of four players who will compete against each other for the title, the final of which will be played on the weekend of the official opening. If you are interested in entering a team for this event, please contact the club directly at Lough Lannagh.
On Sunday 27th. June the official opening of the club will take place and as part of the celebrations, a unique political event is being held at the club. Despite what the latest polls indicate, there could be the start of a major shift in political party affiliations with perhaps the makings of a national government of consensus!
Our local politicians will battle it out on the courts and it is hoped the community of Castlebar and surrounding areas will come along to see real politics in action and to enjoy this event. It will be interesting to see if it will be love all or simply love all around, when Enda, Bev, Harry and Caitríona battle it out on court number one.
The Club coaches will visit the local Primary schools and introduce “Mini Tennis “ to the pupils of 2nd-3rd class.
The children will also have the opportunity to participate in a design your own t-shirt competition entitled “ Tennis is Fun”. A panel of judges will decide on the winner and this t-shirt will be printed and the ball boys and girls will wear it on the day of the official opening, Sunday 27th June.
There is a full programme of events planned for all the family on Sunday 27th June and everybody is welcome. Please visit the club website: www.castlebartennisclub.com for further details
