This past weekend played host to 3 different competitions all of which were held in the University of Limerick.

The Munster premier open and the Munster grade F Open were both played on Saturday with the finals of the premier open being held Sunday morning.

It was great to see so many Kerry players travelling up to Limerick to play in these competitions. We had a total of 17 players travel up to Limerick on Saturday to play in either the Munster F Open or the Munster Premier Open.

Congratulations and well done to all the players for going up and taking part over the weekend.

Well done to Adele O’Brien who lost out in the final of the ladies doubles with her partner Ciara O’Donovan (UL) in the grade F competition and also to Aoife Bowler (Moyvane) who won the plate competition on the day.

Kerry were also represented in both semifinals of the mixed in the grade F competition where Jessica Galvin and her partner Rahad Rahman (both Killarney) lost out to a young pair in their semifinal and to Adele O’Brien and her partner Marcus Pippet (UCD) who lost out in the other semifinal.

A big thank you must be said to all those that were involved in organising the competitions over the weekend everyone seemed to enjoy the play and it was a great way to get back into it and to get to know new people as well as old foes who you don’t come across everyday.
