Wicklow Tennis Club news
WICKLOW TENNIS Club fielded four teams last Sunday in the first round of the Dublin Lawn Tennis Council Senior League, otherwise known as the over35s.
This year there are two men’s and two ladies teams consisting of three doubles pairings taking to the courts for the five weeks of round robin matches which will hopefully be followed by some qualifying rounds. The day started with the men’s matches at 11.00 a.m.
The first team captained by Simon Kelly played at home and were unlucky to lose 2-1 to Aer Lingus and the second team captained by Barry Rooney travelled up to Shankill TC and won 3-0. The two ladies teams had home matches in the afternoon. The first team under the guidance of Lorraine Gallagher had a great victory over Westwood Leopardstown winning 3-0, with Marie Haughton’s second team being less fortunate losing all three matches to a stronger Monkstown team.
Thanks to those who subbed and good luck to all four teams next Sunday.
