Welsh Junior Championship 2018 - RLTC successes

Hearty Congratulations to two of our junior members, Danny and Conor Flynn who have been competing in the Welsh Junior Championships this week with superb results. 

Danny has won the Open Doubles with his partner Tiarnan Brady and he has also reached the Boys U18 and Open singles finals. 

Conor continues to succeed and has reached the Boys U12 singles final. 

This is the showpiece tournament in the Welsh Junior tennis calendar and the final matches are being played throughout Saturday (1st September) at Cardiff Castle LTC. 

Coaching Update

Like any organisation, it's important that Radyr LTC constantly reviews what it offers. With the growth in our numbers, and with our on and off court facilities now being amongst the best in Wales, a sub committee representing all areas of the club looked at our coaching. As you can imagine it was a difficult meeting for all of us, as Drew has given much to the club, and on a personal level, we all like him a great deal.
