St Michael’s Lawn Tennis Club is set in the heart of Blackrock, Cork, in a secluded and peaceful setting. It is surrounded by old stone-walls, and shares a perimeter with the Blackrock Bowling club. It boasts one of the oldest and proudest heritages in Cork. It was set up in the 1920’s, and has been serving the local community for nearly 100 years.
We have 5 all-weather outdoor floodlit courts and a practice wall. Our club house has separate male and female changing rooms complete with showers and toilets. We also have an indoor table tennis table in our spacious comfortable club house. Our kitchen facilities can cater for the many people that attend our various events throughout the year.
With a long established membership, the club also includes some of Munster and Irelands finest junior players. In the recent past the club has produced 8 juniors who have achieved top 10 rankings in Ireland. We have a very strong junior coaching programme that caters for all levels and ages. Coaching takes places in the afternoons during school term, and tennis camps are run during school holidays. John O’Rourke, one of Munster’s finest coaches, runs these sessions under the stewardship of the junior committee. Some useful club related links can be found here.
We are a small friendly club with a strong social aspect. Club Night is held every Tuesday evening (7.30pm onwards), where all adult members can enjoy an informal night of mixed doubles at all levels. This is also an event for non-members to try out the club before joining. Just turn up with your racquet and a game will be organised for you.
Our popular Veterans Tournament is held in June every year. This attracts entrants from all over Munster.
Many other events, including inter-club friendlies, Wimbledon Ladies Day, internal leagues, and our Turkey Tournament in December, are run throughout the year finishing with the Hot Whiskey morning on December 26th..
