Storm Clean Up A big thank you to the volunteer team on Saturday last week who helped with the Storm Ciaran clean up. We had seven members muck in, plus two parents waiting for squad children, and three further members willing to help but the time just didn’t work for them this time. We achieved a great deal in two hours to help toward the Club rebuilding, again, after yet another major weather event. We have been very lucky that the 2-court bubble survived the storm. The process for permanent repair to the bubble by a UK team has started but thanks again to Chris Clark who has done some rather ingenious temporary repairs where we lost two anchor points and suffered a snapped cable so that hopefully no further damage will happen while we wait for the UK team to organise themselves.

Dingle Tournament - 19th November Join us for a fun game of Singles to Doubles - Dingles! A point is started with both players on the same team feeding the ball underarm at the same time to start the two singles points. The singles points are played out at the same time in the half-doubles court. When one singles point finishes the other point which is still in play now becomes the doubles point! To win one point, the doubles team needs to win both the singles and doubles points, to win the match it's the first to five, four all is sudden death! It’s a fun game and as coaches, we use it a lot, as everyone is involved a the same time and lots of action and it's tough to win one point! Closing date for sign-ups is 17th November.
