Get to know other players of the same standard and play social or competitive tennis with them.
Members can organise their own playing groups and bring friends and visitors.

Corona Virus Lockdown
The Club has been in a state of suspension since the closure of the tennis courts under the lockdown regulations in March 2020. Although the membership year ended on 31/03/2020, membership was automatically extended for all existing members at no charge until the Club was able to reopen for organised tennis at Cloughey.
Partial relaxation of lockdown. On 29/05/2020, Council reopened all their tennis courts to the public, free of charge, during all daylight hours. The Club was ready to reopen using Tennis Ireland guidelines, but this has not been possible as we are unable to have exlusive use of the courts for our regular weekly clubplay and coaching sessions. Our members are playing under the guidelines issued by Council, and we are hopeful that within a few weeks these guidelines will be reviewed and that the Club will be able to restart.
Restart of Club activities On 15/06/2020 the Club restarted Clubplay sessions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with coronavirus restrictions on touching balls and playing doubles. Members should book their place through Whatsapp and not turn up 'on spec' as only players are allowed on court.
