Tinsel Tennis night – Saturday 7th December

Some photos from our Tinsel Tennis night, held in the clubhouse on Saturday 7th December.
The tournament was played by 24 members sporting a variety of Christmas attire! The weather was horrendous with gusty winds and heavy rain showers but it did not dampen spirits even when Santa hats and tinsel were being blown around the courts!
Everyone had been invited to the clubhouse where most festive costume was awarded to Louise Dunne who rocked the courts and provided festive cheer as Mrs Claus.
Prizes were awarded to the winners of the Team Tennis tournament that ran during November/December.
There were Country Crest Vouchers for the team with the highest score overall and the teams with the highest score on each line (Men’s, Ladies 1 & Ladies 2).
Congratulations and some well deserved €50 Country Crest vouchers go to our overall winners with a total of 25 points…..

Team Tennis Tournament

Our first ever Team Tennis Tournament kicked off this week. The competition format is doubles and sees teams of 4 playing against each other to score the most points in ‘Best of 21 Games’  matches. To add some intrigue to the proceedings the pairings are decided upon just before each match begins, so no one can be sure of who will be on the opposite side of the net!
 
The team with the most points overall and the teams that top each ‘line’  will receive vouchers for the Country Crest Farm Shop….just in time for turkey shopping! Prize giving will take place at Tinsel Tennis on Saturday December 8th.
