The Player of the Year awards for 2013 at H illview Sports Club, Clonmel were won by Con Lucey (Gents) and Shula McCarthy (Ladies).
Congratulations to both, for Con this was a much deserved honour after many years of trying. This award completed a very good year for Con who also won the Presidents Prize. For Shula McCarthy, this would have been a memorable year, having played a leading role in the Ladies Tipperary team who regained the Inter – County Championship after a long break.
From the Pitch and Putt Committee, a very sincere thank you to all who have supported the various events throughout the year. A special thanks to all our sponsors, without the support of whom these events would not have taken place. Thank you to the groundstaff who worked hard all year to ensure that the best possible course was presented for all events. Finally, the Pitch and Putt Committee would like to wish all a very Happy and Joyful Christmas and New Year, and we look forward to seeing all on the course in 2014.
Tennis Charity Night
Despite the inclement weather, while it was unseasonably mild, it was windy and damp, we had a great turnout of members for the annual charity tennis tournament. This year the proceeds were for the Clonmel Hospice and over 300 euro was contributed. Thanks to all who participated and gave donations. Afterwards the Social Committee took over proceedings for the Club Party night, this was masterminded by Mattie Boyle and all enjoyed the food, music and dancing. Some of the tennis players may not have played to form due to having a cup too many of mulled wine prior to playing. It was great to see all grades of players participating. The winners in Section A were Martin Ormond and Annmaire Moroney, Section B winners were Betty Lonergan and Bernie Rouse and Section C was won by Michelle Carey and Carmel Boyle.
