"Battle in the Big Top"
We launched our upcoming fundraising event in partnership with Moycarkey Borris last Saturday. This is an opportunity to raise funds to aid with the cost of developing our new 3 new dressing-rooms and other ancillary services at our clubhouse which are in the final stages of completion. "The Battle in the Big Top" is a white collar boxing event and there are a number of players and club members currently in serious training for the event on March 16th at our clubhouse. We urge all club supporters to support the event which promises a great nights entertainment. Tickets are on sale from players and committee members currently and you will need to have your tickets bought well in advance.
