BLTC hosted an event last Tuesday for a program the club plans to start next September in Conjunction with Down Syndrome Cork. Minister Simon Coveney launched the program for us. In attendance along with the minister was the Manager of Down syndrome Cork Ray O'Callaghan, The CEO of Tennis Ireland, Richard Fahy, the chairperson of Munster Tennis Robert Cummins, Deputy Colm Burke TD along with a small few members from the club and kids that will take part in the program when it starts in September. It was a hugely successfully event and we had time at the end to discuss the future development of the club with the Minister.
Virgin Media did a piece on the program that will be on TV tonight Friday at 530PM news, If you miss that I also attached a link to it below. I also attached a link to photos that were taken during the event.
We would have loved to have you all there but due to tight Covid Resrictions we were limited to a small number of People.
