Ireland vs Poland Junior International Friendly

Ireland vs Poland Junior International Friendly

As COVID-19 restrictions have eased over the last number of months, Tennis Ireland is delighted to be able to provide more international competitive opportunities for junior players.

In early June, Tennis Ireland hosted a qualification event in Naas TC for two Irish teams to compete in the European Championships in July. Unfortunately, in July, Ireland had to withdraw from the European Championships over uncertainty surrounding restrictions and travel to eliminate the risk for players, coaches and their families.

We are happy to report that the players who qualified for the European Championships event will instead be going to Warsaw, Poland next week for a training camp and an international friendly match vs Poland. This is a fantastic opportunity for our players to represent their country.

Building on the success from the Junior Four Nations tour last month and with light at the end of the tunnel, Tennis Ireland is thrilled to provide another opportunity for the deserving players to represent Ireland in a competitive series.

Tennis Ireland are also in discussion with the Polish Tennis Federation on future exciting collaborations.

The tour will take place from 27th – 31st October with training and matches on clay courts at top class facility Akademia Tenisowa Tenis Kozerki.

 

The following players qualified from our June playoffs:

18 and Under

Juliana Carton

Cliona Walsh

Dylan Leeman

Dylan Breen

 

14 and Under

Rachel Deegan

Amy MacCarthy

Zac Naughton

Eoghan Jennings

 

Coaches for the tour include John McGahon and Sinéad Dunne.

Huge congratulations to all the players and we wish both teams and coaches all the best in what will be an exciting series of matches.

Players that earned places in July but were unfortunately unavailable for the Poland tour include Celine Simunyu, Nathan Slattery and James Lammas.
