Munster Winter League
For the first time in years we have entered Teams in 3 divisions. It is great to see so many members interested in travelling and competing for their club.
Ennis has got off to a strong start in most divisions:
Div 3 played Limerick Lawn and the team of Aidan Foley Dave Keane Ann and Helen Gallery were narrowly defeated in a 3/2 scoreline in a tightly fought 3 set Ladies Doubles.
Next match is an away fixture to Sundays Well followed by Cannon Hayes on Dec 9 at home
Div 4 have played just one match against Canon Hayes and achieved a great win of 3-1 with Dave Quinn Chris Rudland Teresa Curtin and Liz Tuohy flying the flag for the club.
Div 5 are storming ahead with a superb 4-0 win against Bandon courtesy of Sean Carroll Wayne Burke Mary Healy and Una O Reilly, This was followed by a tightly fought battle against Whitechurch resulting in a 2-2 scoreline with Wayne and Mary this time teaming up with Declan Cusack and Aileen Daffy.
All matches won count as a point so with a lot of matches ahead a lot of points up for grabs.
Keep an eye on the booking sheets. Come down and support our teams in their home fixtures. Gurranteed exciting tennis and an opportunity to show off our superb facilities.
It is hoped to run off a couple of Blitzes (American Tournament style) before Christmas. Keep an eye on the board!
