Intercounty Grade D, F & H

3 teams from Kerry had an early rise Sunday morning as they travelled to Waterford to take part in their respective Munster Intercounty graded competitions. The Kerry grade F and H teams played in the new SETU arena while the Ds travelled to Cappoquin for their day out.

The Kerry Grade D team emerged victorious after defeating Tipperary 9-0 and then coming up against a very strong Waterford team where it came down to the very last game which was 3rd mixed.

Kelvin McNally and Helen Browne played a brilliant game which went all the way to 3 sets after the Kerry pair won the second 26-24 and the 3rd 21-13. The team will now go forward and represent Kerry and Munster in the All Ireland later in the season.


The grade F team had a tough group in which they played Cork and Clare. They were beaten by a strong Cork team in the first game 7 matches to 2 but were in a much more tight affair against Clare where Clare just scraped it 5 games to 4.

There were some close games played here with 2 of the 5 games Kerry lost going to 3 sets in very close games. But on the day it was Clare and Cork that emerged from the group.


The Grade H team also played in the new SETU arena where they had both Cork and Limerick. In the first game they 2 were beaten by a string well playing Cork team by 7 games to 2. In the second game, Kerry played really well and beat Limerick 5 games to 4. This them put them in the mix to go through but unfortunately on counting the games back Kerry only won 7 games between the 2 matches where as Cork and Limerick had 10 each and so they went through.

Kerry Juvenile Doubles Championships

The Kerry Juvenile Championships continued today in Killarney with the girls’ and boys’ doubles. While players from Annauscaul, Moyvane, Castleisland, and Tralee contested finals, it was a sea of green from Listowel that once again swept all before them.

They contested all eight finals and won all eight, a truly phenomenal achievement. Many thanks again to Suzanne and Mary for taking the entries and making the draws; club helpers and Tom Bradley for the photos.
