Munster Graded Doubles and Mixed.

This past weekend, the Munster doubles and mixed finals were held in UL. For this competition, all those that won county championships get the chance to play the winners of the other county champions in Munster. Congratulations to all players that went forward and represented Kerry on the day, it is great to get an experience in competitions outside of the county against people you wouldn’t usually get to play.

Congratulations to all those that came home with medals:

Grade G:

Rita McCarthy and Michael Belova Flanagan both from the Listowel club won the grade G mixed doubles after some very close sets.

Aoife Bowler and Huimin Tang ( Both Moyvane) represented Limerick on the day and took home silver in the ladies doubles.

Grade F

Josie Gilbert and Adele O’Brien took silver in the ladies doubles after some very close games only to lose on points, just 6 points behind the winner.

Kieran Crehan and Jill Redmond also took home the silver in the mixed doubles after very competitive games.

Grade D:

Finally in grade D, Jennifer Nash and Helen Browne took home gold just tipping over Waterford who took silver.

A big well done to all players who travelled up on the day and represented Kerry very well and to the best of their ability.

Next weekend is the annual Listowel tournament so make sure to get your entries in for that.

Division 3,4&5 Mixed Leagues

During the past week the finals of the Division 3,4&5 mixed leagues took place in Killarney and Ballyheigue. Its always great to see each club getting involved in the leagues as it gives all of the players more chances to play other people from different clubs outside of competitions. There’s also a good competitive edge and sportsmanship in the leagues as each club bids to win and become the best club in the respective grades.

The Results from the finals are as follows:

Division 5:

Winners: Ballybunion

R. Up: Annascaul

Division 4:

Winners: Listowel

R. Up: Killarney

Division 3:

Winners: Moyvane

R. Up: Listowel

Kingdom Castleisland were also crowned Division 2 & 1 league champions

So that’s the end of the leagues for this year a big thank to all the organisers and to both Killarney and Ballyheigue for hosting the finals.

Best of luck to Ballybunion, Listowel, Moyvane and Kingdom who now go forward to the Munster rounds on the 30th of April in UL.
