Fun-filled summer at Manorhamilton tennis club

It’s been a very busy few months for Manorhamilton tennis club since the schools closed for their summer break.

Our first camp started in early July with the children enjoying fun with friends, and the good weather joined in as well.

Next up was our Wild Rose Tennis Open evening, along with the beautiful Roses in all their finery minus the heels, taking part in a few games with gusto, to the enjoyment of our own little princesses who got their photos with the Roses. Fantastic ladies and all winners in our eyes. A big go raibh maith agat to Danny, Finbar, Breege and all for their help.

We look forward to welcoming all who showed an interest in tennis on the evening, hopefully we’ll see you all on court very soon.

Don’t forget to get back in touch with Mary 087 2290136, she’s waiting for that phone call, so there’s no time like the present.

The Bonnichon Family

A very big "Merci" to Pascal, Siobhan, Cian & Aoife for their very generous sponsorship of T-shirts to the children.

Pascal and family have and are huge supporters and very generous contributors to the club in so many ways - Pascal wearing many hats, ie, BBQ king, wine merchant, free on court French lessons, of a sort!! Always with a generosity of spirit and heart.

He brings out the very best in the children with infectious fun and laughter. Pascal you are a wonderful friend, and we appreciate your kindness, support and generosity. Merci Beaucoup.
