The Super Seniors Inter Provincials is coming up this weekend 12/13 May and we are looking for VOLUNTEERS to help us show Greystones LTC at its best – that includes our club and facilities and of course our members as hosts to this fantastic event.
We need extra hands for the following times
- Friday 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm
- Saturday 12 pm 2:30 pm 4:30 pm
Many hands make light work and teams of 5 or 6 will have everything done in well under an hour for each shift! Marie McCooey is the co-ordination point so please contact her on 087 207 9627. As always your support is very much appreciated.
And in case you missed it what this is all about – What is the Super Senior Veterans?
Ladies and mens doubles matches between Leinster, Ulster, Connaught and Munster. All provinces play each other over the course of the weekend.
