Castlebar Tennis Club won the Eagle Star Supreme Tennis Club of the Year Award at a reception at Fitzwilliam Tennis Club on 30th October 2003. The Mayo club was one of six finalists selected from 200 entries nationwide, many of which were visited by Tennis Ireland.
Tennis Ireland subsequently selected 20 clubs, which were subsequently evaluated by officials who viewed facilities and interviewed representatives.
This list was then reduced to a shortlist of six clubs who were represented at the awards.
The judges were particularly impressed by a number of initiatives taken by Castlebar Tennis Club including the promotional activity in the community, the innovative structure for children¦s tennis and the strong organisational structure.
Castlebar Tennis Club has 150 members and was formed in 1937.
