Castleview Junior members are coming to the final weeks of the Supervision and Coaching summer schedule and are enjoying each moment of summer freedom before returning to their studies at the end of the month. During the Supervision sessions, the Juniors were involved in many activities run by the Supervisors including Singles and Doubles Tournaments. Last week's activities included a Singles Tournament, the winner of which was Adam Grace with Conor Mackey, runner-up. The summer period might not have been kind weather wise but the Juniors didn't let this dampen their spirits and immersed themselves in all that was on offer at the Club.
Castleview members have been for the past week, competing in the Tramore Senior Open week, which culminated on Sunday 12th August. The competition is always of high standard at the seaside Club and Castleview members enjoy the high level of competition and the Club's fantastic setting overlooking the sea. The members reaching the Finals day and clinching prizes were:
Grade 4 Ladies Doubles: Runner-up Claire Walsh (partner Niamh Owens)
Grade 5 Mens Doubles: Runners-up Paul Cummins and Brendan Gleeson
Castleview members will be taking their chances in Tipperary Tennis Club's 2012 Open Championships running from 12th August to 18th August. This is an unsual tournament in that members competing may find themselves competing on some of the Club's Clay Courts. Those lucky enough to have the Clay Court experience will find it very enjoyable albeit a little more challenging than the Lawn Courts most common in the South East. Castleview members have for a number of years been travelling to Tipperary to compete and no doubt this year will be the same. Castleview wishes the best of luck to all it's members competing and hopes they will make the best of their sliding abilities during the tournament!
The American Tournaments continue each Monday at the Club. Those wishing to get involved should phone the Club between 6.30 and 7pm with their entries.
Play commences at 7.30pm.

Not so GR8 G8With world attention on Fermanagh as the meeting place of the latest G8 Summit it is no wonder that locals are basking in the reflected spotlight. We have all been told, if we haven't already experienced at first hand, the beauty of the location. We know about the exclusiveness of the hotels that the various leaders are going to be staying as well as some of their security detail. We know about the menus from which they will be choosing from. There is little about summit meeting that the …
