Grand Slam Winning Coach in Sutton LTC
Sutton LTC are delighted to welcome ATP Tour coach Dave O'Hare to the club on July 21st. Dave will be putting on a doubles clinic for both juniors and adults.

World No. 1 ranking - April 2022

Glasnevin Senior Open 2023
Plenty of fantastic results for our seniors over the past week in Glasnevin… loads of late night matches and tight tiebreaks!
The men’s class two doubles event consisted of an all Sutton final! Congratulations to Ciarán McCarthy and Charlie McKeever who beat the McKenna brothers in a very entertaining final.
Ciarán’s victories didn’t stop there…he reached the semi final of the men’s championship event, a big, well deserved achievement. He lost to the number one seed who went on to win the tournament, but a fantastic run for him nonetheless!
Congratulations to Sophie O’Connor and her partner Fernando Garcia Seeber who claimed the XD2 title. They came out on top after a tough week of many tiebreakers and match points down. Two being 18-16 and 14-12, they definitely didn’t fail to entertain the crowds at Glasnevin lawn tennis club!
Liz O’Connor and John Burke were finalists in the XD4 event. They played many late night matches and championship tiebreaks to secure their place in the final. Unfortunately a loss this time but on to the next!
Congratulations to Naomi Cullen and Nessa Goodman who reached the semi final of the women’s doubles class 4 event! They also played through many tough sets and champ tiebreaks.
