Irish Squash Junior Open 2023
We are very excited in the Club to host the Irish Junior Open 2023 this weekend from Thursday 16th to 19th November (inclusive). Plans & arrangements have been in place for many weeks now in order to make a very enjoyable weekend for all players, members, visitors and spectators alike.
Please note, that the Club will be very busy all weekend so be careful in the entry laneway for oncoming traffic and while on the premises for pedestrians crossing the car park. We will have a registration & administration desk manned in the lobby for the entire weekend, so please do not leave any belongings on the floors, or in the corridors at any time - any items that are left on the floors are a trip hazard for others and will be removed to the Junior room for collection.
The lounge & bar will be hosting visiting players and families all weekend, so please bear this in mind when visiting the Club... remember be welcoming & hospitable as we always are by extending our 'céad mile failte' to all. Our volunteer bar staff will be on-hand and will be hosting one of our 'cocktail' nights on Friday 17th November from 8pm onwards.... don't miss out!
Finally, we have many players from SLTC playing and some great travelling players leading up to some exciting games throughout the weekend, so please do drop by and show your support at some stage over the weekend.
All members to be aware that Suttonians Hockey Club Pub Quiz & Raffle Fundraiser will be held in the club lounge on Saturday 25th November, from 7pm.
There will be shower works ongoing this coming week to regulate the shower temperature, please bear with us during this time.
When parents/minders are entering/leaving the carpark please do so with caution, do not speed through as there are a lot of children on the premises for after school Tennis/Squash coaching.
