Looking to get Upgraded?

For those who have nearly enough points to be upgraded time is running out, there is only 4 tournaments left in Cork with one of those just under way at Douglas where their Senior Doubles tournament started on the 13th and runs to the 23rd of August.
Like all Douglas tournaments this should be an enjoyable event and will no doubt attract a competitive field.

This is followed by one of my favourite tournaments, Lower Aghada, that went missing for a while, but now in a new spot I hope it thrives and continues well into the future. This runs from the 22nd to the 29th of August.

The next tournament is in Ballinlough from the 6th to the 12th of September. After hosting 2 very successful Interpros last week (U-14 and U-18) I would think Ballinlough can't wait for their turn to come around as anyone who was lucky enough to be there for the interpros and saw the very high standard of tennis must be just bursting at the seams to get going.

The final one of the season, the place to be if you only need a couple of points to move up a grade is Bandon where from the 19th to the 26th of September they will hold last open until next Easter.
Don't miss out.
Best of luck to all for the remainder of the season.
