Carrickmines Croquet & Lawn Tennis is the location for the first Mens ITF Pro Circuit Futures event on Sunday 16th – Saturday 22nd July.
The ITF Pro Circuit is an entry level professional tennis initiative, a natural first step in the life of a professional tennis player and players such as Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer would have participated on the ITF Pro Circuit.
Carrickmines CLTC is well accustomed to facilitating large Tennis events and hosts Junior and Senior Open tournaments every summer but this will be their first time playing host to the ITF Pro Circuit.
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council will sponsor the ITF $25,000 tournament. The Council has a strong presence in the local community and recently assisted Shankill TC in the development of its new indoor tennis facility, another welcomed boost towards the development of the sport at all levels.
Irish Davis Cup team-mates Sam Barry and Peter Bothwell are amongst the maindraw entries with Irish Grand Slam Junior Simon Carr sitting just one off qualifying for the main list.
Additionally, there will be a number of players from overseas who will travel to Dublin to compete for the title with players expected to be ranked from 200 -350 in the ATP World Rankings.
Whilst there is no entry charge for spectators at either event you do require a ticket and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request your ticket.
