New One-Wall/Wallball Court for Emyvale Good progress is being made behind the scenes to make our new indoor One-wall court a reality. With confirmation just before Christmas that we were successful in our Youth Fund Grant application, funded by the EU Peace (Northern Ireland – Ireland) programme, we are delighted that we have finances secured to proceed with the project. There are just a few more hurdles to clear before the new court is installed and we hope to have the new facility installed hopefully by the end of January.
Club Gear We should hopefully be receiving our Club Gear order from Playr-Fit in the next week or two. We will share updates on this in the Club WhatsApp group.
