Go Leinster, Go!

I have a busy weekend ahead of me, I have been selected to represent Leinster in the annual Inter-Provincial veteran tennis challenge. Ireland is split into four provinces; Leinster, Ulster, Munster and Connaght and once a year they play each other at tennis in different age categories. This is the third year I have been selected and each year it takes place in a different province. Two years ago I played in Galway (Connaght) and last year I travelled to Bangor (Ulster), this year Leinster is the host and luckily for me the club hosting the event is a seven minute car journey from my house (it could have been anything up to a couple of hours away as each province is fairly large). I have to be at the club at 8:30 am tomorrow morning and will spend the day there, this is followed by dinner on Saturday evening then tennis again Sunday morning from 9am. I'll barely get to see my family but I'm sure it will be a great weekend so wish me luck.
