The Mixed tournament took place yesterday, Sunday the 27th of November in the Presentation Gym Killarney. Once again, there was a good entry for each of the division with the division 5 and 3 men having to play doubles in order to have the honour to play with one of the ladies. Similarly to last week it was a draw for partners.

Here, you the men first played out a doubles playoff in order to get into the mixed draw as there was less women than men entered. The mixed was then played out in a round robin format of 1 game to 21. In the end it came down to the final game of the format where Paul Hayes (Listowel) & Josie Gilbert (Ballyheighue) beat Kieran Crehan (Killarney) and Carmel Hudson (Moyvane) to win the Waterstone Cup

In division 1&2 they played a straight final which was very close, going to 3 sets. In the end Jennifer Nash (Killarney) & Mariusz Tszinski Kingdom (Castleisland) came out the winners against Ruth Concannon (Kingdom Castleisland) & Ushes GR (Ballyheighue) on a score line of 21/16, 16/21, & 21/18.

I’d like to thank all those who helped with the running of the competition, the day was run very successfully and I hope all the players enjoyed the day.
