September 2019

Summer Cup

This year Douglas was well represented in the Summer Cup competition. It was a knockout competition and we started out with 8 teams in the competition. Our Ladies grade 3 team of Roma Buckley, Lucy Cullinane, Dervilla Griffin and Ruth O’Sullivan and our Mixed Grade 6 team of Mary Cummins, Majella O’Regan, Patrick Foley, and Cian O’Connor all made it to the finals. The finals were held in Rushbrooke on Sunday Sept 8th. Our Ladies grade 3 beat Hillview from Clonmel and our Mixed grade 6 team narrowly lost out in super doubles to Tralee. Well done to you all.

Autumn League

This is an internal 6-week event and is open to all grades. It is a doubles competition for ladies, men’s and mixed. It is run on a Sunday evening from 6pm – 7.30pm and starts on September 15th. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet club members and there will be tea/coffee in the clubhouse afterwards. The cost for the 6 weeks is €10. If you would like to take part, please mail –

Light Cards

Lights cards can be topped up in the office during the office hours. However outside of these hours, light cards in the sums of €10 and €20 will be available to purchase from J.J. O’Driscolls shop in Ballinlough and Daybreak on the Rochestown Road. This is not a top up facility but an opportunity to purchase extra cards. Please return any empty cards to the office for recycling.


Lights cards are also available from the following club members so just ask if you see them:

Roma Buckley, Lucy Cullinane, Eileen Devey, John Downes, Fiona O’Callaghan and Pat Peate.


There is cover on a nightly basis to sort any lights problems:

Mon & Wed – Chelley is in the office

Tues – Committee members available, Fiona O’Callaghan or Patrick Foley

Thurs – Committee members available, Cheryl Billinghurst or John Downes

Sub Committees

We would like you to get involved in our new social or club development committees. The club is growing, and we would love to run a social event every quarter so would welcome any ideas and help. We are also looking to apply for any grants that may be available to us as a club and put a development plan in place for the club. Please contact any member of the management committee if you think you can help us.
