SLTC NEWSLETTER NO. 50                      THURSDAY 17TH DECEMBER
 
AIRHALL SO NEAR YET SO FAR !!-   Despite the very best efforts of Covair’s technicians and our Volunteer Force led by our Captain, John Mc Avoy , Gordon Ireland, Bruno Haas, Brendan Farrelly and our Staff, Gerry Healy and Eamonn O’Donnnell who worked tirelessly throughout yesterday to repair the Airhall from 7am, when it came to actually erecting the membrane, the wind suddenly increased in strength making it too difficult and dangerous to continue. We will be monitoring the wind patterns closely and will keep Members informed of progress.  Thank you for your patience and we are trying our best.

ST. MICHAEL’S HOUSE
Over the last 3 months we have been delighted to be coaching a group of players from St. Michael’s house.
 
There are 40,000 people with an intellectual disability in Ireland and up to now they haven’t had access to tennis.  The project which is entitled “Enjoy Tennis” has linked Tennis Clubs in all four Provinces with local service providers to people with an intellectual disability such as St Michael’s House, Carmona Services and Festine Lente.
Rob Turpin, Eoin Considine, Orna Morrissey and Odette O' Dea have been running the program here in Sutton LTC and have loved every minute of it.
Last week we ran a big get together for the Groups from Sutton, Malahide and Clontarf. All the players received a cert to recognise the completion of the course. 
We will be continuing with the guys in the New Year.

U/15 ONE DAY JUNIOR TOURNAMENT  - THIS SUNDAY 20th DECEMBER
The next Junior Squash ONE DAY TOURNAMENT is for U/15 Boys and Girls. It will be held on this Sunday  starting at the later time of 2.30 p.m. – 6 p.m. approx. Entry Forms in Club NOW
Players cannot be accepted on the day even if there are spaces in the draw as Irish Squash points are awarded for these events and ranking is important, redraws would be necessary and impossible at this stage. Thanks for your understanding.
 
If for some reason you enter the Tournament and need to pull out, can you please contact the Organizers as a lot of effort is put into the draws and running of these events and it is unfair to all if you do not turn up.
We will be looking for Volunteers to run this event. Please email squash@suttonltc.com
