Java Republic - Proud Sponsor of Malahide LTC
The Junior Open was a great success. We had 350 entries from all over Ireland and there was super tennis over both weekends. A huge thank you to all the members, both senior and junior, who volunteered long hours of help as referees, court supervisors, umpires, kitchen & tuck shop and bakers. It was a wonderful show of how great our club is and we received so many complements from players and parents. Thank you also to the members who were patient in giving up the courts for the two weekends. To top it off a massive thanks to Dave McKernan, our sponsor who provided the prizes for all eight events, dedicated his weekend in umpiring, getting beaten at table tennis in the junior room, chatting to parents & players and sharing his delicious flavoured teas !

This week's ATP World Rankings see James Cluskey's doubles ATP ranking climb to a personal career high of 152. James and fellow Irish player and Davis Cup partner David O’Hare recently announced their new partnership and got off to a great start in a Challenger tournament in Brazil last week reaching the semi-finals, only to lose out in a championship tiebreak 4-6, 6-1, 7-10.
Peter Bothwell's ATP World Singles Ranking shows improvement to #1507, from a position of #2204 at 2014 year end. Great progress in 4 months for Pete as he progresses his career.
Both lads are aiming to be available for at least some of the Club's Summer League matches again this year.

The CTC is an umbrella group of tennis clubs more than 100 years old, including some of the most prestigious clubs in the sport.

The aim of CTC is to uphold the traditions of tennis, as well as the spirit of fair play which is inherent to this great sport. The organisation looks to achieve this through organising competitions and other sporting and cultural events; arranging tennis workshops and seminars; and generally supporting the activities of member clubs around the world.
