We have an extensive adult coaching programme for all levels available at Rathgar Tennis Club organised by our coach Kieran Galvin, with the support of the adult tennis committee and club members.
There are a range of opportunities to play with an extensive calendar of social, competitive and coaching events throughout the year.
Adult coaching plays a very important role in the club’s activities with regular coaching and ‘meet and play’ events organized each week.

Each year Rathgar Tennis Club takes part in the annual Dublin Lawn Tennis Council (DLTC) series of competitive, inter-club tournaments. Teams are entered across a range of levels and all members are encouraged to represent the club at the level that suits best.
Over the years, we have brought home silverware in the annual DLTC Floodlit, Senior, Winter and Summer league competitions across all categories. Alongside the competitive element, the inter-club competitions give us the opportunity to visit other clubs across Dublin, socialise and keep us ‘match fit’!
Competitive tennis events held during the year include the President’s Prize, Spring and Autumn Team Doubles events, Singles and Doubles Box Leagues and Ladders, Ladies Charity League and inter-club Team Doubles events with the highlight each year, being the annual Rathgar Tennis Club Championships.

The Club hosts the Annual Club Championships in September.
Members compete at their level over the course of a few weeks in their choice of Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles events. The Championships provide a great opportunity to pit your wits against follow club members.
Final’s Night is the highlight of our social calendar. The BBQ comes out, the music plays and on-court rivalries are put to one side in place of an evening of laughter, great food and fun (and a few prizes along the way!)
