Bar Price Increase:
From 1st September 2023 there will be some minor increases in the prices of alcohol at the bar due to the Diageo price increase in August that everyone was hit with. This will be reflected in the products we purchase from Diageo only.
Save the date!!!
Air-Hall / Bubble inflation!!! At 9am 18th September 2023 we are calling for as many volunteers as possible to assist in putting the bubble back up. We will provide lunch for all on the day and would really appreciate as many as possible attending. Please email your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sutton LTC Senior Open 2023 sponsored by Adrian Dunne Pharmacy
Saturday 19th August - Saturday 26th August inclusive
Our biggest Senior Open of the last few years attracted almost 400 players from all over Ireland. A huge thank you to our sponsor Adrian Dunne Pharmacy for being so generous in their support.
The tournament only runs through the incredible hard work of Roma Hegarty as our Tournament Director. Big thank you to our mens captain Patrick Nolan who took the referee duty for the week. Conor Mckenna and Carmel O’ Hare stepped in to give Patrick a night off. Thank to Orna, the tennis committee and all the volunteers on the ground and the bar staff that made it such a great week.
The big Sutton successes were Aisling O’ Connor winning the ladies championship singles, William Kell pushing top seed Amaar Elamin right to the wire in the mens final. Aisling McGoldrick took home the ladies Class 2 title with Carmel and partner Una Mcentee reaching the final of the championship doubles.
See you next year!

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.
Mens 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.
