Facilities over the Winter which was outside our control . The
Club Council are committed to the development of a vibrant section and hope
members will bear with us .The Council intend to take a much greater role in

in Tennis later in the month in order to plan for the summer season. Grass
courts should open early May.
Gym : We had an interesting offer last year for a take over of the Gym .
It might have brought new equipment but it would have been a private
operation with a separate membership structure etc . In recent months we have
spent near €3000 on extra weights & heavy duty mats . We don’t have a Gym
committee and would welcome same . Also could members please keep the
gym tidy , kindly put weights etc back on the relevant racks after use .
Snooker: Again the usage of Snooker room is less than it used to be . We
were a famous Snooker club with 4 or 5 teams in the inter club leagues . We
would welcome if a few members came forward to organise competitions &
run activities. Indeed there is a problem with messing/untidiness in the
snooker room and we may have to lock the room and make the key available
on request at the office or bar unless this stops . Your help is requested .Indoor Bowls : Continues in the Hall every Tuesday and Sunday night
at 7 pm . New Members always welcome
Pool Table : Always very popular . Our Team competes in the North
