Sutton LTC East of Ireland Junior Open sponsored by MSL Park Motors
The finals of the East of Ireland took place last Saturday with some fantastic tennis on show
This year marked the final year that Roma Hegarty and Odette O'Dea will be involved. Roma and Odette were both instrumental in returning our junior open to the Irish junior calendar and back to Sutton LTC in 2012. A huge thank you from all of us in the club for the incredible dedication to our junior open from both over the past 11 years.
Despite some challenging weather, all juniors played incredibly well and to very high standards. Thank you to all of the spotters who gave up their time this week, as well as tram chowder for supplying delicious food and to our sponsor of the tournament msl park motors Mercedes Benz
Congratulations to Eoin Quinn, Jennifer O’Connor, Antonia Lydon, Emma Hickey, Harry Weld-Moore, Tim Lavin and Georgia L’Estrange for representing our club so well in the finals. A big well done to all Sutton juniors for participating this year! See you next year

CONSIDERING SENIOR SQUASH LEAGUE
Each year we enter Senior Squash League Teams in the Leinster Squash Leagues Competition. Sutton pride themselves in the fact that we have committed and strong league teams and featured for many years in the winning circle.
Covid played a part in a fall off but we hope to return to our strength and plan to enter teams in the League for September/October.
Men's Teams are made up of 5 players and Ladies 4 players. It is a great opportunity to compete as a team in such an individual sport. Matches are Home and Away throughout Leinster and run until approximately March/April and it is followed by Cup Competition, which is a knockout system.
It is important to get commitments from players who will make themselves available for the matches each week both home and away. There are many divisions of different standards from Premier to Division 6.
I will be sending out an email soon to gauge interest and I hope we get lots. Keep an eye out and if you have any questions drop in and chat to me.
