St. Anne's TC Inter Firms Tennis 2017


st annes tennis interfirms 1


This year's Inter-firms event sponsored by Mulligan's Pharmacies/Specsavers will take place from Sunday, 23rd April to Saturday 6th May 2017. The club would like to extend an open invitation to all companies and businesses in the region to participate in this event.


The Annual Inter-firms Tennis Tournament will be held at our club grounds at John's Hill. Entries close Monday, 10th April.


Getting bigger and better with each successive year, it’s time to submit your entries for the 2017 Inter Firms Tennis Competition, once again generously sponsored by Mulligan’s Pharmacies and Specsavers – to be played at St. Anne’s Waterford Tennis Club.


Since its introduction in 1984, this competition has maintained its popularity and is now a “must” on many people’s social calendar, an event not to be missed. In tennis circles, it has gained reputation as one of the biggest and best in the country. The main attraction is that the competition is open to participants from all standards of tennis, from those who have been playing for years to relative beginners who are just as much interested in the social attractions of the event.


The term “Inter Firms” does not imply the event is restricted to a small group. Teams from factories, hospitals, offices, banks, shops, schools, organisations, etc are all welcome to play. In fact they may enter as many teams as they wish, but each team must have at least one employee and must play under the name of the factory, shop etc. Where several teams enter from one firm, the teams will be identified by the captains’ name to avoid confusion.


The competition is in the form of mixed doubles, each team consisting of four players, two ladies and two men. In order to accommodate all abilities, the competition will be divided into six sections.



Entry forms are posted to all firms and are also available at St. Anne’s Waterford Tennis Club, on the club website, or any branch of Mulligans Pharmacists or Specsavers Waterford, who are the sponsors of the event. The closing date for entries is 6pm on Monday 10th April.


Because of the large number of entries and the enormous administration task that goes with it, the closing date will not be extended. It will not be possible to accept late entries. The names of the players and the name of the team captain must be completed in full on the entry form. A contact telephone number must be included. Completed entry forms, with entry fee of €80 per team, including a courtesy €20 voucher for a welcome drink in the club bar, to be returned to Michelle Kirby, Club Administrator, St. Anne’s Waterford Tennis Club, John’s Hill, Waterford.


Play will commence at 5.30pm on Sunday 23rd April. The first round of the competition will be played in the first week and completed in the second week in conjunction with a Plate Section for First Round Losers. All teams will play at least three games. Beautiful prizes will be awarded to the finalists (winners and runners up) and these will be presented on Finals Night, Saturday 6th May.


The draw and timetable will be published in the clubhouse and on our website. It may also be viewed at St. Anne’s Waterford Tennis Club, on our website or at any branch of the Mulligan’s Pharmacies and Specsavers, the event sponsors from that date. Because of the size of the competition it will not be possible to change the time or date of any matches.


“We look forward to seeing all the teams in action for what will be the 34th Inter Firms Tennis event and even if not playing, please come along and support your friends and work colleagues, says Club Chairman Denis Breen.
