ARKLOW TENNIS CLUB
The ladies team were in Templeogue Tennis Club last weekend for the the Dublin Lawn Tennis Council Winter League Ladies Division 7 final against Naas.
Irene Ryder and Kay Hickey maintained their unbeaten record with another fine 6-4, 6-4 win while Martina Behan and Caroline Kavanagh fought hard, going down 2-6, 6-4, 36.
The final reached a nailbiting climax with the final match going all the way to (2-6, 6-4) 7-5 in the third set, the Naas girls securing the victory over the gallant Jacintha Kinch and Helen Fox who came very close to pulling of a shock win for the newest club in Dublin League.
Back in Arklow club play has gathered momentum with the Spring League at the semi-final stage and entries being taken for the Seán Kelly Memorial Tournament. Seán, a former Club Secretary and club stalwart passed away 15 years ago and the competition has been the highlight of the club calendar since 1997.
Junior Coaching continues on Saturday mornings with coach David Sheehan who will be running Easter Camps at Arklow Lawn Tennis Clubs’ excellent facilities on Coolgreaney Road and there is senior coaching with Pablo Plaza on Monday nights.
