Carrick-on-Shannon Tennis Club aims to make tennis as accessible as possible to everyone who is interested in joining. It is a non profit organisation run exclusively by volunteer members. We do not charge once-off entrance fees and try to keep our membership rates as low as we can. Against this background the club has to manage its finances carefully to cover running costs. In the case of major capital expenditure, fundraising activities together with grant funding are vital to the club’s future as a facility for the local community and visitors.
Proposal to build changing rooms, showers, and toilet facilities
Our tennis club sorely lacks shelter, changing rooms, showers and toilets. Such facilities are much more important now our membership draws on the entire south Leitrim region. This Conservation Area design, coordinated with local council planning, includes dedicated male and female changing/shower rooms, a wheelchair accessible bathroom with shower, and an externally accessible toilet to cater especially for our regular visitors, for example young children at schools coaching sessions, and groups from the National Learning Network.
Over the next year, our fundraising efforts will be directed towards making this project a reality. We have applied for funding through the Sports Capital Programme 2023 but, even if successful, we will need to find a significant contribution from our own funds. Please help us by donating to this worthy initiative!
