Club Singles: in both divisions are reaching the final stages. In Division 1, Christopher(pj) McKenna plays either Padraig McKenna or Michael McCarron. The Div2 has not reached the final stage yet. Please insure all games are played up to date. Double’s are now drawn up and are soon coming. 

Juveniles: We have the juveniles divided up into groups and will soon be notifying the players what nights and times they will be on. We hope this will give the players more handball time and will improve their skill levels.
