Downshire's Sam Bothwell

Gaelic games are not top of the sporting agenda in the quaint Co Down village that is Hillsborough but the local tennis club has bought into the GAA’s ethos.

That organisation prides itself on the notion that the club is at the heart of the community and that’s precisely what Downshire Tennis club is attempting to replicate - and with considerable success.

This is more than just a mere tennis club as it sees itself as an integral part of village life and a visit to the small but immensely hospitable and welcoming outfit certainly bears this out.
