Win a house in Crosshaven!
Crosshaven Tennis Club was inaugurated in 1990 and three courts were built on the grounds of Crosshaven House.
The First President was Dennis Duggan and the First Captain was Marion Riordan. R.I.P.
In 1995 our Clubhouse was built. On the 1st October it was officially opened by the then Minister for Sport Bernard Allen, along with Club President Carol McDonnell.
In 2004 the three courts were upgraded to a savannah surface. This was a big undertaking for the club and it brought the club to a new level. In 2011 the lights were upgraded.
In 2013 the Club held its first affiliated Open Championships. This tournament was a great success and is run annually. Our open always provides a week of good craic and great tennis.
In 2017 Crosshaven tennis club joined the Tennis Ireland School Initiative Programme with Colaiste Muire Transition year students. The club was also accredited with the bronze award from Tennis Ireland.
The club has gone from strength to strength and thrives with internal competitions, such as Tribes, our closed tournament, club night and beginner’s night. We have a very strong junior section, with coaching and squad sessions held weekly. Some of our junior members have gone on to represent Munster and Ireland and all our junior members do the club proud. Our adult members are active from beginner’s level right up to Grade 1 standard.
WHY WE ARE RAISING FUNDS:
Our project to alter and extend the clubhouse is phase 1 of a 3 phase master plan which will enable the club to host a programme called “Enjoy Tennis” an initiative for players with disabilities. This programme caters for players with intellectual disability, autism, acquired brain and spinal injuries, visual impairment and wheelchair users.
These improvements would offer better facilities to our local schools and community groups and attract new members in a location with an ever growing population. The facility will be used by existing members, local schools for tennis coaching, recreational and self-esteem programmes and by Tennis Ireland for “Enjoy Tennis”
