Saturday 30th March 2019 – Presidents Prize

A great night of tennis was had by all at the annual Presidents prize Competiton hosted by President Sean Hegarty. The weather held up nicely which is always helpful for any outdoor event.  Play started at 19.00 with 30 x players and 15 x teams.  A group of 8 and a group of 7 with each team playing 7 & 6 matches respectively with semifinal and final. The format was 5 x handicapped games and no advantage. The team pairings were extremely even and any team on the night could have won this competition. After 3 x hours of play it was right down to the wire as we had to wait until the final matches to see who would emerge through to the semi-final. It was Declan Connolly & Tommy O Shea V Alban Glasscott and Jack Kelly and Laura Diffley & Thomas Norton V Paul Commins & Maurice Walsh….. From two hard fought matches the finalists emerged,  Alban Glasscott and Jack Kelly V Laura Diffley & Thomas Norton with Laura and Thomas running out as eventual winners in a thrilling contest! Congratulations to Laura and Thomas on a great win and spend those vouchers wisely!!
