Junior “FUN DAY” at Argideen

All junior members are invited annually to the unique Argideen Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club situated at Ummera in Timoleague. The Fun Day has become a traditional part of the summer itinerary, and is viewed by all as a fantastic occasion, rewarding in every sense. Timed during the end of June and July, it compliments the summer junior coaching workshop, and the juniors under 12´s tournament The Eileen Corcoran Memorial, all these events held in that busy period. Competitions for all age groups are organized from the under 9s up to the under 18s, and the six lush, superbly-maintained grass courts provide ample facilities for plenty of tennis during the afternoon and early evening.

Classic tea, tasty snacks, and soft drinks are served midway through the proceedings, and the original pavillion, which is over 100 years old, is a perfect setting for the fun affair that our juniors are privileged to enjoy every year. Attendance is high, normally in the eighties to ninties and numerous parents are involved in running the competitions, seeing that the juniors are well tended, particularly the very young players, and responsible for the prize distribution at the conclusion of the event.

Sponsors for the memorable Fun Day out are Kieran White and Jim Blackwell.
