Leixlip Tennis Club is delighted to announce that the new date for the 24 hour marathon will be from 7pm on Friday 4 September to 7pm on Saturday 5 September 2019.
All adult club members are invited to participate and are being requested to take a sponsorship card to help us fundraise for club development.
With the imminent completion of the clubhouse, the financial resources of the club have been diminished and it is now essential that we focus on fundraising activities so we can ensure the ongoing maintenance of the club and look at future development opportunities.
Sponsorship cards are available from our Fundraising Committee, headed up by Vincent Mulhall, and they will be on court in the coming weeks to distribute them.
We are asking all members to get sponsored for participating in the marathon, with hopefully reaching a target of at least €100 each in total sponsorships. This will go a long way to replenishing our club funds.
The marathon will take place on an hourly rota over the 24 hours and will be in a mixed doubles format, with each participant being asked to play for at least 1 hour. We will have plenty of food and craic over the 24 hours and, on completion of the event, we will have a party in our new clubhouse from 7pm on Saturday 5 October and we would love to see all participants back for the celebration.
Bring on the fun!!!!
