Kerry Mixed Doubles Tournaments

Last Sunday, we held the mixed doubles tournaments in Tralee Spots and Leisure Centre. It was great to see such a great entry in each of the divisions and everyone seemed to be enjoying their badminton .

A big thank you must be said to all those involved in the running and organising of the competition itself. It was great to see the entry so big in the lower grades that the men had to play off doubles before they get the chance to play mixed doubles.

The division 1 & 2 competition was being played for the Drummond Cup and the division 3 players were playing for the Waterstone Cup. The results from the weekend are as follows:

Division 5:

Winners: Driss Lecointe (Killarney) & Michelle Woods (Moyvane)

Leinster Masters:

Congratulations and well done to Sinead Galvin and Miriam Rohan who travelled up to Dublin to play in the Leinster Masters competition on Saturday the 25th of November. They played together in the ladies doubles over 50s division and won. They beat the 3 other pairs in their division to win the title. A big congratulations to Sinead and Miriam!

Munster u15 & u19 Open.

Well done to Triona Prendiville and Nicole Vesko (both Listowel) who both did really well in the U15 Munster open at the weekend which was held in SETU Waterford. The 2 girls played together in the ladies doubles and went all the day to win in a very close final.

Nicole also made it to the final of the mixed doubles with her partner Ben Rooney (Blackwater Jnr). They both played very well all weekend and were unlucky not to win in a very close final once again.
