Thanks to everyone that came and helped with the erecting of the Air Hall/Bubble on Monday 18th and the final stages today Thursday 21st. Great to have the bubble back in action for the next few months until April 2024 and hope you all enjoy it. Please ensure to always respect your fellow club members and the new rules in place.
Hospice Coffee Morning
The charity coffee morning on Wednesday 20th went extremely well, in co-operation with the Howth/Sutton Lions Club there was a great atmosphere. Super raffle with prizes donated from the attendees, lovely spread with tea, coffee and cakes donated from SuperValu and Bewley’s. All culminating in over €2,250 raised for St. Frances Hospice in Raheny.
Thank you to all involved
A great ‘At Home’ champs’ week was hosted in the club with some great tennis and lounge bar events for all to enjoy, with the finale being the eagerly anticipated BBQ & Music with DJ Billy Scurry. I’m sure it was enjoyed by all who attended any part of the weeks action.
Sutton LTC Senior Championships 2023 sponsored by O Hare O Dwyer Solicitors
Our Senior Championships sponsored by O Hare O Dwyer Solicitors came to an end at the weekend. We had 128 players take part across 22 events. Huge thank you to our Men's Captain Patrick Nolan who ran the event and scheduled every single match along with playing himself. Thanks to our Ladies Captain Susan Hunter who arranged DJ Billy Scully to make it a memorable At Home night on finals day.
Well done to our two championship winners Aisling O’ Connor and William Kell. Aisling won her 4th singles title beating Jean Loughney in the final. Jean at only 15 was making her first final appearance. William beat Rob Turpin in the final of the men's making it two years in a row for him.
Well done to all the finalists this year, and to everyone who supported the event.https://ti.tournamentsoftware.com/tournament/93A1ADC3-06AA-463E-8B57-5C9CDAD9A8ED

URGENT - 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.
Email email@example.com if you are interested or if you have any questions drop in and chat to me. Eoin Ryan
