Attention Rockbrook Padel Club users

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to unexpected works taking place on Edmondstown Road, the access to the Club is now blocked on the Merry Ploughboy Pub side. Access can be gained via Mount Venus Road and the Marlay side, Scholarstown Road and Stocking Lane.

This is an unfortunate event that has arisen due to the negligence of works going on across the road from the Rockbrook Park School entrance. The stretch of road between the Merry Ploughboy Pub and the school will be closed for a whole year. Expensive works will take place to fix the road, which is in danger of subsiding at present.

We apologise for the inconvencience caused due to reasons outside our control. The Club is currently seeking legal advice on how to proceed as this is already causing a major inconvencience to regular users and members.

Regular schedule for padel training sessions, school use and evening use will continue as normal for the time being.
