AROUND 200 tennis players will descend on Ennis this month for the Ennis Eye Candy Opticians Mixed Doubles Open.

Taking place from July 13 to July 20, the biggest event in the Ennis Tennis Club calendar year will attract players from Cork, Limerick, Kerry, Tipperary, Offaly, Mayo, Sligo and further afield.

Registration is open until Saturday at midnight and with more than 180 entries already received, the Ennis Eye Candy Opticians Mixed Doubles Open has already far surpassed last year’s entry.

Welcoming top players across grades 1/2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, up to 60 players a night will compete across the competitions each night throughout the week.

Dervilla Moloney is tournament director, and is supported in the running of the event by tournament referee Brian Moore and vice referee Sarah McSwiney along with the sub-committee.

Falafel King food truck will be on site providing food from Monday to Saturday while Boru Sport will be at the club on Sunday, July 14 with a pop-up shop selling club gear and more.

Dervilla told The Clare Echo, “It will be busy every night with 60 players playing per night. Our semi-finals night is on Friday with all finals on Saturday.

“This is the biggest event of the year in Ennis, it’s a Tour 200 event and we’re pushing to make it a Tour 500 event. Of course none of this would be possible without Linda Brannigan from Eye Candy Opticians who we are very grateful to for her continued support of the annual event.”

Linda of Eye Candy Opticians added, “I’m delighted to support Ennis Tennis Club. I’ve been a member for close to 20 years and it’s great to give back to the club that I’m very fond of and have seen grow over the years. It’s a privilege again to be asked to sponsor this prestigious event.”
