THERE was plenty of jubilation at Wicklow Tennis Club on Saturday as the men’s first team won the Class 3 Dublin Lawn Tennis Council’s Winter League.

The team of six were pitted against a very strong Rathgar first team, and all three matches provide to be tight affairs before Wicklow edged out their opponents to win the Winter League.

Due to Covid-19 all finals were played in one of the finalist's club as opposed to a central venue where several finals would be held at the one time, so with a home draw for Wicklow it meant many members could come along and support the team. The lads played nine matches in total so they had a great campaign and are already looking forward to competing in Class 2 Winter League in 2022.

The team consisted of Conor Ruttledge and Peter Finnegan, along with Tomás Morrissey and Sean Farrell, as well as captain Fred McHugh and John Curry.
