Club play on Wednesdays will start at 3.30pm from Wednesday 14 October as it is now too dark to play in the evenings. Saturday club play continues from 2pm throughout the winter.

A Reel Tennis Tournament took place at Helen’s Bay on Saturday 10 October. The photo shows some of the 12 players who took part in this home grown tournament which was played in blustery conditions. Everyone played 5 mini matches which resulted in Richard and William coming first and second and receiving Helen’s Bay pens. A good afternoon’s tennis was enjoyed by all.

We are now fully open for normal club play on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons although the clubhouse remains closed. We continue to follow Ulster Branch and Tennis Ireland Covid-19 guidelines including hand sanitising and social distancing.

Adult coaching has restarted on Monday evenings. If interested please contact Rosemary via the club email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 07894862413.
