Bray People - - About Greystones -

LAST Satur­day evening saw the un­veil­ing of Grey­stones Ten­nis Club new ex­ten­sion.

The mas­sive ¤ 1 mil­lion ex­ten­sion was met with a great re­sponse from both mem­bers and guests.

Pres­i­dent of the club Brian Wood con­grat­u­lated the mem­bers on their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion that made the ex­ten­sion pos­si­ble.

Honorary Sec­re­tary of the ten­nis club Su­san Hayes cut the blue rib­bon and of­fi­cially opened the new ex­ten­sion.

Spe­cial guest at the un­veil­ing was Mayor of Grey­stones Coun­cil­lor Ge­orge Jones.

He con­grat­u­lated the Pres­i­dent of the Club Su­san Hayes and Chair­man Brian Wood for their con­fi­dence in Grey­stones to un­der­take such a de­vel­op­ment.

Cllr Jones con­cluded by wish­ing the club well and he was sure the mem­bers of Wick­low County Coun­cil would agree to sell­ing some ad­di­tional land to se­cure the fu­ture of the club.

‘It adds to the great golden mile of sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties in Grey­stones,’ said Mayor Jones.

Once the speeches were over the guests then en­joyed a small re­cep­tion with wine and canapés served. The guests were then treated to a fan­tas­tic sport­ing spec­ta­cle of ex­hi­bi­tion ten­nis match- es. The ¤ 1 mil­lion ex­ten­sion in­cludes new chang­ing room fa­cil­i­ties, a bal­cony ex­ten­sion where mem­bers can en­joy a cup of cof­fee while watch­ing the ten­nis matches and a brand new meet­ing area.
