Astra + Tennis = Community Spirit In Carrigaline

Astra + Tennis = Community Spirit In Carrigaline

Carrigaline Tennis Club will hold its Annual Summer Open from June 20th until June 30th. With an entry of over 250 participants from clubs all over County Cork, there is a guarantee of some great tennis for the ten days. Hopefully there will be some great weather to go with it!

Local construction company, Astra Construction, is the main sponsor of this event. Stephen McCarthy, MD Astra Construction, very kindly presented Carrigaline Tennis Club with a cheque recently which will contribute to the smooth running of the tournament. Stephen is a strong supporter of local sports clubs and amenities, and strongly believes in fostering a love of sport and a sense of community within his numerous Carrigaline developments. His current development, Janeville, incorporates many green areas, facilitating outdoor play for young and old alike. Carrigaline Tennis Club is very appreciative of Astra Construction’s support and hopes that Astra can also guarantee good weather for the event!!

As always, running a tournament takes a lot of planning and time, all of which is done voluntarily by club captain, Maria O’Reilly, and her tournament committee, as well as the kitchen committee and numerous other club members. So, let the games begin and may the balls forever be in your favour!
