Tennis Ireland Strategy Development Process – Town Hall meetings November 2022

Tennis Ireland has commissioned ONSIDE to undertake a strategic review of the organisation. As part of the process, ONSIDE has been engaging with a range of tennis stakeholders to better understand the expectations they have of the organisation and their priorities for the future.

 

Findings from these sessions with Tennis Ireland executives, Board members, Branch representatives, clubs, government and other key stakeholders will be presented at regional Town Hall meetings in November 2022. The following is confirmed dates and times for each province:

 

21/11/22 – Leinster @7:30PM @ Carrickmines Croquet & Lawn Tennis Club, Dublin

22/11/22 – Munster @ 7:30PM @ Firgrove Hotel in Mitchelstown, Cork

23/11/22 – Connacht @7:30PM @ McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris, Mayo

24/11/22 – Ulster @7:30PM @ Clayton Hotel, Belfast

 

The purpose of the meetings will be to inform attendees of the process to date and seek input on the directional strategy that is emerging from the consultation.
