The club undertook a major overall of our  tennis courts which included the re-positioning of Court 2 (away from the dreaded Orchard Wall) , improving court drainage and resurfacing of  all  three courts.This was enabled through  a major fundraising event called  The Cube which took place in the Carrigaline Court Hotel and was supported superbly by the Club Members.

2017 

Was a very exciting year with our bottom courts being re-surfaced.  CTC joined  the Tennis Ireland School Initiative Programme with Colaiste Muire Transition year students in 2017.The club was also accredited with the Tennis Ireland Clubmark bronze. 

2018


We have now submitted our Sports Capital Programme application for 2018. The goal is to carry out alterations and renovations to the existing Clubhouse to meet disability requirements and facilitate community groups, local schools, and increase our membership.
