Well done to all qualifiers and commiserations to the runners up this evening.
Two more days of qualifying rounds ahead so plenty more great tennis for all supporters to enjoy!!!
Well we’re finally on the home stretch! After 11 playing days so far, 20 group matches, almost 150 players, two slightly (!) wet nights and without doubt great matches every night, we are down to our last week.
Last group stages take place tonight (Monday 22nd) and tomorrow (Tuesday 23rd) with the semi finals from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th July followed by our BBQ and Finals Day on Saturday 27th.
We also have our Quarterfinals for the Mixed B Section kicking off this evening from 7.15pm at Nenagh Lawn Tennis Club who have kindly lent us the use of their courts for the evening to host our matches so many thanks to NLTC for their hospitality.
Our sincere thanks also to Noel Russell and Birr Wilmer TC who rearranged some of their own Open fixtures in order not to clash with some of our round robins for players who had entered both competitions. Scheduling never an easy task so cheers Noel!
Quarter finals line up and draft Semis & Finals line up in attachment below. Please note that these are still in draft format and may be subject to change once all the group stages are completed.
By the standard of games so far it’s going to be a very exciting week ahead so best of luck to all players! Hard luck to those who haven’t made it so far but fair play for being so sporting (even on those damp evenings!).
Don’t forget all are welcome to come along and support any evening this week for the Quarters, Semis & of course Final’s day. All players are still entered into our raffle prize draw on Saturday so if you come along you just might be lucky!

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:
