Jude Hughes – our very own star

It is with great pleasure that I am linking to articles in the Irish Times that feature our very own Jude Hughes, as well as his appearance on Liveline with Joe Duffy.  

The article contains a documentary on Jude, and is very much worth the watch – the very same documentary has recently won the videographer a prize also. 

Jude on LiveLine can be listened to by clicking here

2018 Winter League Campaign Update

For the last 5 weeks, 3 teams from Trackside LTC have braved the elements to compete in the 2018 run of the DLTC Winter League. 

For what I believe is the first time in a long time (if ever), we have had the privilege of being able to enter two men’s teams, and one ladies team. 

With the first five weeks of the initial campaign now complete, we are entering the play-off stages. 

Unfortunately, neither the 2nd mens team nor the ladies team made it through to the play-offs. 

The 1st Trackside team however are through, having won all their matches, and are playing the first round of the play-offs on Sunday morning in Donnybrook at St. Marys Tennis club. 

I want to thank all players on all teams for their time, commitment and effort and look forward to more of the same for the upcoming Summer League!

Membership Renewals – 2018

Dear All,

It is time again to re-join (or join) Trackside Lawn Tennis Club.  Please find attached the membership renewal form for 2018.  (Please note all relevant sections must be completed in full.)  

Membership Application form 2018

There was no increase in membership fees in 2017 but a modest increase in fees in 2018 to cover insurance and maintenance on our new all-weather courts was agreed at the recent AGM.

The membership year commences on 1st February.

The carpeting of the two new courts was completed in 2017 and so we now have a total of six all weather courts. There will be a great programme of events throughout the year, both social and competitive, which we would encourage new and existing members to take part in.

Subscriptions are the main source of income for the club and so once again, we hope that all our members will encourage friends, family and work colleagues to join the club. Prospective members are allowed to play free of charge three times before joining, see website for details.

You may choose to pay for your membership by Cheque, Cash or Bank Transfer.   Cheques should be made payable to ‘Trackside Lawn Tennis Club’. Completed registration forms should be left with the caretaker on duty and marked for the attention of Fiana O’Hanlon 

If you wish to make payment for your membership by bank transfer, please quote your name as reference.  (Please note: application form should also be completed and handed in to the club)
