Junior Supervision and Coaching
Castleview Junior members are coming to the final weeks of the Supervision and Coaching summer schedule and are enjoying each moment of summer freedom before returning to their studies at the end of the month.
During the Supervision sessions, the Juniors were involved in many activities run by the Supervisors including Singles and Doubles Tournaments.
Last week’s activities included a Singles Tournament, the winner of which was Adam Grace with Conor Mackey, runner-up.
The summer period might not have been kind weather wise, with regular rainy days making play a little damp for the younger players, but the Juniors didn’t let this dampen their spirits and immersed themselves in all that was on offer at the Club.
Tramore Senior Open
Castleview members have been, for the past week, competing in the Tramore Senior Open week, which culminated on Sunday, August 12.
The competition is always of high standard at the seaside Club and Castleview members enjoy the high level of competition and the Club’s fantastic setting overlooking the sea.
The members reaching the finals day and clinching prizes to bring home to Carrick on Suir were -
Grade 4 Ladies Doubles: Runner-up Claire Walsh (partner Niamh Owens).
Grade 5 Mens Doubles: Runners-up Paul Cummins and Brendan Gleeson
Castleview members will be taking their chances in the Tipperary Tennis Club’s 2012 Open Championships, which is running from August 12 to August 18 in Tipperary Town.
This is an unusual tournament in the summer schedule, in that members competing may find themselves competing on some of the club’s clay courts.
Those lucky enough to have the clay court experience will find it very enjoyable albeit a little more challenging than the lawn courts most common in the South East.
Castleview Tennis Club members have for a number of years been travelling to Tipperary to compete and no doubt this year will be the same.
Castleview wishes the best of luck to all it’s members competing and hopes they will make the best of their sliding abilities during the tournament!

The American Tournaments continue each Monday at the Carrick on Suir Club.
Those wishing to get involved in the tournaments should phone the Club between 6.30pm and 7pm with their entries on the day of the competition.
Play commences at 7.30pm each Monday evening.
