Tennis coach Garreth O’Carroll

This isolation season…

…give the gift of tennis.

Coach Garreth O’Carroll writes:

I’m delighted to offer some Coaching Clinics for budding tennis players when these restrictions lift in the South Dublin and North Wicklow areas.

Tennis is one of the few sports where social distancing protocols can be adhered to and is proven to be excellent for training focus, reducing stress and improving Cardio Fitness.

I have five gift Vouchers available for half price at €100. Each Voucher is worth 4 private lessons.

Most my lessons are conducted in Deansgrange [County Dublin] but I can travel if there are local public courts near you.

Why not check out my profile and if you have any questions pop me an email. Stay safe and hopefully see you on the court soon.

Finally, Murray has crossed the Rubicon line. Finally, after four wrenching defeats in slam finals, he has claimed the prize he coveted above all others.
The scale of the achievement, as Murray became Britain’s first slam champion for 76 years, should not be underestimated – and nor should the determination it required for him to break this breakthrough.
