Informational Video on the proposed Dome

82k Sports Grant awarded to CWLTC

We’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of 82k in the recent allocations of the capital sports grants.

Earlier this year the government introduced a new round of sports capital grants which are aimed at improving the playing conditions of sporting clubs throughout the country. In the past we have received grants for other capital projects, most recently for the construction of our two mini courts which have proved a very valuable asset for our Junior members.

The general committee after looking at our long term needs and taking in to account the facilities of our neighbouring clubs decided that we would apply for a grant with the purpose of building a temporary single skinned indoor dome to benefit the entire playing membership and extend the playing season to allow us play tennis in even the most inclement weather that Ireland can offer! We are sure that our members have lots of questions and perhaps some reservations about moving forward with such a project. We intend to have an open evening early in the new year where the committee will present the proposal and outline the reasons why we after much consideration believe a dome will be a fantastic addition to the club.

Ahead of any meeting please have a look at the Leinster Tennis website where information on air supported domes can be found.

http://www.leinstertennis.ie/seniors_tennis.php?number=234

There are also a couple of pictures attached to a give some idea of what the project may look like.We look forward to engaging with the membership on this before proceeding to the planning stage.

Kind Regards,

The General Committee

MENS FIRST TEAM PLAY FINAL IN NAAS

9.15AM ON SUNDAY 16TH OCT

The Men’s Over 35 1st team have reached the finals of Class 2. They are now guaranteed promotion to class 1 for next year.   They will play their final on Sunday at 9.15am in Naas. It’s been a few years since we’ve won a Class, so it would be brilliant if the guys did the business on Sunday and brought home a winning pennant.   The more support we can get out to Naas on Sunday the better. The teams are always lifted by our supporters. In fact, in the semi-final the Navan team commented that we’d great support and that really helped us.   So hopefully we’ll see as many of you as possible out in Naas on Sunday morning.

Making the presentations, Club Chairman Joe Breslin, thanked the four for their unwavering commitment to the club during good times and bad adding that there can be no doubt that they are a marvellous advertisement for the health and fitness benefits of the sport of tennis.
