College Squad

2017 saw Leinster Tennis launch its all new College squad. The idea of the squad was to provide better sparing and hitting for
our top U18's whilst keeping our younger adults in the game by giving them an outlet to practice and improve their tennis.
The feedback from both college and junior players has been very positive and Leinster Tennis is delighted to have another
successful squad up and running.
