Sinnott Skoda Senior Championships update from Club Captain
Lots of great matches on last night (August 21st) but I just have to mention the following two, both of which started at 8.30pm and were still on court some two and a half hours later.
A fantastic battle in the ladies B semi- final between Clare Murphy & Aine Teevan, kept spectators at the club till well past 11.00pm, finishing in a superb win for Clare in a third set tie-break. Lots of long, nail biting rallies and a superb display of tennis. Well played ladies.
Likewise on court 6, a very competitive match between Kate and Aidan Hennessy and Anita Boylan and Jeff Byrne ending in a 5/7, 7/6, 6/4 score in favour of mother and son. This was a tremendous battle and could have gone either way in the end.
Please check out our match schedule for updates on tonight’s games. We have a number of semi-final matches in action including our court 1 selection between Conor Rutledge & Jack McHugh at 7.00pm and the 8.30pm slot allocated to the men’s A semi-final between Robert /David Pickerill and Will McNabb and John O’Brien.
With the exception of those listed below, all finals will be played on Saturday 26th starting at approx 3.00pm. Unfortunately, we cannot issue an exact schedule for finals day at this stage as same is dependent on results yet to come through.
Friday Night’s Finals
Ladies A Doubles
Men’s A Doubles
Mixed A Doubles
It is great to see so many members coming down each evening to support the matches and hopefully this will continue as we enter into the last few days of the competition.
