AISLING O’CONNOR FED CUP DEBUT
Well done to our very own Aisling O’ Connor who made a winning debut as she represented her country for the first time in the Federation Cup in Montenegro. Aisling picked up a Singles win in the group stage encounter with Kenya. The Irish team won 2 out of their 3 group matches and finished 3rd overall out of the 8 teams after beating home team Montenegro in the play offs.
What an incredible achievement for Aisling at just 15 years old!

MENS AND LADIES PILATES CLASSES STARTING MONDAY 3RD APRIL
What a fantastic day for Sutton LTC yesterday, with the much anticipated visit of Judy Murray …. and boy, she didn’t disappoint! There was something to learn by kids and adults of all ages …. and all abilities …. in two fun and information packed clinics – lots of skills training, tips and anecdotes about her famous boys, Andy and Jamie – she even agreed that Andy can be a ‘grouchy bugger’ sometimes while on court. She’d lots of stories about her time coaching kids in Scotland and also about her time on “Strictly Come Dancing”. Following the clinics and after endless photos and autograph signing, Judy officially opened the new and improved airhall. She was clearly impressed by the size of the club and by its recent additions of new airhall, new squash courts and gym and also at the amazing community spirit within the club, which she referred to in her speech. She joined members for tea and lots of tennis-themed cakes in the lounge after the presentation, where her relaxed humour and warmth were there for all to see! Judy also got to meet Richard Fahy CEO of Tennis Ireland and local lad – as well as do an exclusive interview with Johnny Watterson of The Irish Times! What a great day – thanks to Judy for making the visit
