Support Your Wednesday Club Night

Support Your Wednesday Club Night

posted by polanders on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
We’ve had a slow start to the year due to the weather but now its picked up we would really appreciate if our members would make an effort to support Wednesday club nights, this really is a life blood for our club were it gives a chance for new members to come along and get introduced and have a good time playing at every level.

Most current members got introduced this way and as a result know everyone involved, it’s aim is being more of a social & entertaining night rather being competitive and it achieves that when we have numbers. Its now current member’s turn to do the same for others that are thinking about giving it a go.

Back in 2000 our girls & boys junior teams won the Parks Tennis League

Back in 2000 our girls & boys junior teams won the Parks Tennis League

Article in Fingal Independent 15 September 2000

The boys and girls of Balrothery swept the boards in the Kit Kat Parks Tennis League this summer, with both teams winning their Division 1 leagues outright. The girls team have won the event on several occasions in the past but this was a first for the boys and the double made for some very special celebrations.

‘Dedication, hard work and pracitice have paid off handsomely again.’ is how team coach Evelyn Hanrahan put it after the great wins as she paid tribute to all those who made the great wins possible.

The girls team beat Balbriggan, Baltray and Skerries in their section to make it to the semi-finals where they really upped a gear to outclass a talented Albrt College side. In the finals in St Annes Park, Raheny, they were faced by a gritty North Kildare outfit but edged them out well on a comfortable 6-3 margin.

The hot-shot Balrothery girls who took the title in such style were: Lorna Sweetman, Maebh Moloney, Audrey McDonnell, Susan Miller, Ashling Cox, Susan Rock, Bronagh McCoy, Caroline Miller, Anna Sweetman, and team captain Kate Lynch.

The boys team pushed their way past Donaghmede, Baltray and Skerries in their opening rounds before they dispatched Poppintree in the semis. Ballyfermot were their victims in the final, with the Balrothery squad charging home on an impressive 8-1 scoreline.

The squad were: Conor Shiel, Harry Kennedy, Tomas Shiel, Conor Moloney, Karl Dickson, Gordon Sambrooks, Ian Bertram, Kevin Heffernan, Garreth Allen, and team captain Alan Kelly.

The brains behind the operation were the top class coaches Evelyn Hanrahan and Heather Kennedy.
