Re-opening of Club Sporting Facilities


Date: May 14, 2020

We are delighted that the club will operate a phased re-opening of our Sporting facilities from Monday 17th May.  Both the Tennis & Boating Committees have been working hard behind the scenes in conjunction with Tennis Ireland and Irish Sailing to develop a series of Protocols that will help us to keep our members safe during this time.

Please have a look at the Events Page to view the Boating Protocols, these have already been emailed to all Boating Members.

The Tennis Committee will host a Zoom meeting this evening @ 7pm to explain the Tennis Protocols and also the new Court Booking System and Booking Rules.  Following the Zoom meeting, these will be available to view on our Events Page and emailed to all members.

The Clubhouse will remain closed until further notice.

In the interest of all members and to continue to enjoy the facilities, it is important that all members support and follow these Protocols.

Stay safe!

Closure of Club


Date: April 02, 2020


Dear Member

In the interests of all our Club members, our community, and in line with Government Guidance, the Management Committee has with regret made the decision to close Wexford Harbour Boat and Tennis Club until 12th April and will then review in the light of updated HSE guidance.  

In making this decision, the Management Committee has considered guidance from many sources including HSE, Tennis Ireland and Irish Sailing and also recognised the limitations of a Club like ours to keep its members and community protected.

Thank you for your understanding. This has been a very difficult decision for all and we are particularly aware of the implications for our staff who have been so supportive in all we do.

We are also conscious that our Club provides a special social outlet to some members and we value their enjoyment of the Club. With the Club closed, and other local facilities closed or reduced, some of these members may struggle. We ask that members consider this need and wherever possible check in on their fellow members and friends. If anyone is in difficulty please do not suffer alone but call the Club and we will try to arrange for someone to contact you.

We are a Club for all and together we will get through this difficult time. 


Thank you for your understanding

Enda Murphy


On behalf of Management Committee.
