Evan Fitzgerald's Munster Selection
Congratulations to Evan Whitty Fitzgerald on his selection to the Munster under-14 boys team for the upcoming inter-provincial competition to be held in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Following a hectic season of wonderful tennis, Evan’s selection was automatic and well deserved. His talent and dedication are exceptional and we in Hillview would like to express our delight and best wishes to this wonderful player in Castlebar and the All Ireland in Fitzwilliam.
The Junior Open Week, which again this year is very kindly sponsored by Mr Frank Quirke, Barrister at Law, Fethard, is in full flow this week for under 12 to under 18s with finals on Saturday. We had a great entry in the under 10s boys, standard was very high and competitive, the winner was William Pizay (Deely) from Paris and Clonmel, he won in the final against another great prospect Josh Hegarty from Castleview.
After the Open Week, we are running an internal Hillview Junior Club Championships, entry forms in hallway.
Junior Tennis Camp
The junior tennis camp run by Tony McCarthy and Grace Durkan was a great success with circa 50 kids participating, hopefully
Pitch & Putt
Scrambles: For the first time this year we lost our regular Tuesday night to bad weather but this was more than compensated by a lovely Thursday evening which attracted an excellent entry. After some sparkling play the winners by 1/3 of a shot were the team of Nora Whelan,Anne Fitgerald and Jimmy Fitzgerald from the team of Pat O' Keefe, Norman Rankin and John Fitzgerald. In third place were the team of Matty Anglim, John Cooney and Stephen O' Reilly.
