Catherine Harris is swimming to support the Enjoy Tennis Programme

Sponsor Catherine now!

The Enjoy Tennis programme is a nationwide initiative to provide tennis access to those with intellectual disabilities. Currently there are some 40,000 people with an intellectual disability in Ireland and they don’t get many opportunities to play tennis or to receive coaching.

So, on most Friday afternoons since November 2015, players and supervisors from organisations associated with St. Michael’s House come to Ashbrook. They have a one-hour session with two specialist coaches. Our volunteers also attend and join in all the activities.

On 23 April, 2018 Catherine will engage in the Swim a Mile initiative (a mile is 64 lengths of a 25m pool) on behalf of our programme. Many members sponsored Catherine last year and we hope many can do so again.

Contributions can be made online via our Subscriptions Page.

TEN out of TENnis

Andrew Ryan is running a mixed doubles event at Ashbrook on Sunday the 15th of April which is part of his module for college, ‘Event Management’. The charity is in aid of Bumbleance charity which is a brilliant charity. It is the children’s national ambulance service, so it would be much appreciated if people could save that date to play on the day or be a spectator.
The entry cost to play will be €10 per person. It will be cash on the day, although if people wish to see Andrew beforehand to pay off, that is also fine.
Participants must tell Andrew who their partner is for the competition. If participants are looking for a partner they must also tell Andrew, so he can set up pairs. He will be down at the club weekly to inform more about the event, and posters will be around the premises as well. There will also be a BBQ on the day and excellent raffle prizes. so please do not miss out, it is for a worthy cause.
 Please confirm your interest by mobile : 0892045752, or by email :
We hope to see you all, it’ll be a great day.

Ashbrook 2nd Team : Ladies Class 5, Dublin Lawn Tennis Winter League 2017

It was a wonderful occasion for Ashbrook Ladies 2nd Team who played in the Class 5 Winter League Final yesterday in Greystones LTC.  The team  played a very strong Clontarf 4th, team and unfortunately Ashbrook lost and didn’t make it 9 in a row. This Ashbrook team have had a terrific campaign,  they have worked very hard as a team , motivating each other, attending coaching sessions and having practice games every week and personally it was a privilege to be part it.
I would like to thank Marie Cassidy who did a wonderful job as Captain encouraging us all the way. The team didn’t need a sub until  the quarterfinals and semifinals, when Marie went on holidays but we had a super sub to take her place, Grainne Dilleen stepped in and played with Therese and won two very important matches to secure the team a place in the finals , Grainne a big thank you .
 On behalf Ashbrook LTC congratulations to the team, Dolores Molly &  Paula Jones, Therese Mulvey & Marie Cassidy and Cathryne McCarthy & Ann Strahan  you did your club proud.
On behalf of the team many thanks to all the supporters who came out to Greystones yesterday at 11 a.m to support us it was very much appreciated.
