All are invited to Greystones LTC for an American tournament, BBQ and to witness the handover of the famous Kim Clijsters skirt, worn by our mens’ captain Chris Quinn at Wimbledon, to Greystones Theatre.
The event, which will be held on Friday 8 September from 7.15pm, the eve of Greystones LTC’s Senior Tennis Open, will include:
- an American tennis tournament – open to members and non members starts at 7.15pm
- a delicious BBQ
- the “handover” and cheque presentation to the Gavin Glynn Foundation by Greystones Theatre and Fila
- an opportunity to sign an invitation to Kim Clijsters to come to Greystones (who knows she might even turn up on the night!)
- an opportunity to sign a welcome letter to Kim Clijsters as an Honorary Member of Greystones LTC (Greystones LTC members only)
- the Greystones LTC ‘grab-a-grand’ draw which you can sign up for on the night.
The skirt, generously donated by Chris, has raised a whopping €6k for The Gavin Glynn Foundation – €3k from Greystones Theatre, the highest bidder and €3k from sports clothing brand, Fila, who kit out the lovely Kim, and matched that.
If you are interested in tennis and BBQ the cost is €10 or if you are interested in the BBQ only it is €7. Tennis limited to 48 people. Those interested in tennis and the BBQ must book and pay in advance for catering purposes.
