CLUB FUNDRAISER – SPONSORED WALK EASTER MONDAY

CLUB FUNDRAISER – SPONSORED WALK EASTER MONDAY

It’s almost time for our annual Sponsored Walk/ Club Fundraiser taking place on Easter Monday, April 22nd!

This year we are taking on the Devil’s Bit Loop walk, which is a lovely moderate 1.5 – 2hrs walk with great Tipperary views and suitable for all the family (though maybe not with buggies!).  Plan is to kick off walk at 12noon in Templemore so if you’d like to car pool from Puckane Tennis Club – meet at Tennis Clubhouse at 11am.  Timing subject to change so if you are intending on walking text club phone for confirmation!

For members you can get your sponsorship cards from the clubhouse.  Though you do not have to be a member to join us for the walk – all are very welcome!

See attached links for more details:
