Jim Blackwell RIP


It is with deep sadness that we learnt of the death of Jim Blackwell, President of Ardfield/Rathbarry Tennis Cub, which took place on 17th September, 2015

Jim suffered a major coronary in Zurich, Switzerland, at 8.30 a.m. local time, on the day of his 73rd birthday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his devoted wife, Hilary, their sons, Clive, Henry and Colin and his extended family.

Jim had been a passionate driving force in the club since its inception in 1996. He took a keen interest in  promoting ARTC at every opportunity, maintaining interest in Junior outings and coaching, and more recently, seeing his dream of a new clubhouse come to fruition. 

Jim's passionate legacy will be maintained by members and non-members alike. 

Jim, may you rest in peace.
