For the beginner, there is the opportunity to avail of coaching with others who are just starting out, while for the more seasoned or competitive player, there is league tennis and club competitions. Regardless of your standard or ambition, there is a place for you in Ashbrook.
There is nothing Ashbrook members enjoy more than a friendly game of tennis. Regular events are organised - one of the most popular is a mixed doubles event where tennis, fun, chocolates and flowers are on offer. Next one of these events will be on February 26th - more details to follow.
Friendly inter - club matches for both Ladies and Gents are proving very popular with our members who do not play on DLTC league teams.
We also run mixed doubles events against other clubs for teams of all standards.
When Winter League is over new initiatives will be in place to get people playing even more
AND ON THE LEAGUE SIDE :
Ashbrook enters multiple teams, covering many standards, in all DLTC leagues.
Currently we are represented in the ongoing Winter League by 2 Gents teams and 3 Ladies teams. The gents play in Class 4 & 6, with the Ladies in Class 3, 4 & 7.
We are hoping for more great league success following our Gents 2nd team winning Class 5 in the most recent Floodlight league and our Ladies 1st team looking forward to Class 2 tennis in this year's Senior league having been promoted last year.
Travel along the Rathgar road until you come to the Church of the Three Patrons, and turn down the road to the side of it (Leicester Avenue). Take the first RIGHT you meet, and this will take you onto Bushes lane, and the club is at the end of the lane.
