Junior League Teams
update Sept 2016
Club wins Boys U14 league and Junior Club of the Year !!
Our U14 Boys team attended an event on 10th Sept at Belfast Boat Club and received their trophies for winning their league Division. Some players from our other junior teams were there and were able to share the excitement with the surprise announcement that Cloughey & District was "Junior Club of the Year" for 2016. This is another milestone for the club and demonstrates our success in developing a new Tennis Club from scratch in 2008. Well done boys..Photos later.
The Boys U14 team was Ross Jenkinson; Joel Bunting; Charlie McClements; and Max Jenkinson. So that is 2 more trophies for us to display.
update April 2016
We currently have teams in the U14 & U18 Boys and U14 Girls leagues. This is the Belfast & District Tennis league and we are in Division 2 in both leagues.

Sat 19th April Away match at Lurgan. Result Lurgan won 5-1
Team: 1 Olivia O'Brien 2 Grace Doherty 3 Nina Lee 4 Charlotte Caughey
Away matches are always more challenging and Lurgan had a strong team. After losing both doubles matches, Grace was the only Cloughey player to win her singles, but Nina also put in a good performance.
Mon 04 May - Away match at Helens Bay. Result Helens Bay won 6-0
The matchese were much closer than the overall result would indicate - full report later.
