TennisGreat Tennis in Hillview Club Championships
We have a great entry for the tennis club championships and were blessed with a dry week; courts were fully scheduled for 6 evenings to complete all sections. It was great to see such good entries and new faces in the grade 5 and 6 competitions. Thanks to the Hillview Flamingo Bingo for the sponsorship. The seeded pairings made for very competitive close matches. Many players were tired after long 3 sets and tie breaks to separate. The top men's section was dominated by Jaco Ossthuysen who disposed the champion of the past 2 years Eugene O'Mahoney in 3 sets.Eugene got revenge when he teamed up with Gerry Burke to win the doubles; they defeated Jaco and Paul Foley. Jaco also won the mixed with Annmaire Moroney, they beat Declan Tarrant and Mary Wall. Nuala Smith and Ann Walsh won the ladies doubles. In ladies doubles grade 4, Cora Morrissey and Mary Wall won against Sinead MacSweeney and Siobhain Slater.In division 5, Richard Thompson won against Noel Byrne, Noel was again unlucky to lose the doubles with Eugene Cooney; Gerry Cahill and Niall Darcy were victorious. In the mixed Niall won again with Vivi Levie against David Johnson and Alison Walsh. In the ladies doubles Gillian Barry and Emma Smith won against Gabrielle Cahill and Ella Power. Cora Morrissey was winner of the 5 singles over Siobhain Slater. In division 6, Emma Smith beat Sandra Charles, Sandra and Evelyn Buckley won against Ann Commins and Margaret Quirke in the doubles. In the mixed 6, Miroslav Hinner teamed up with Margaret Quirke to beat Richard Thompson and Maura Hennessy. It was great to see a wide variety of prize winners.
Table Tennis is restarting on Wednesday evenings at 8:30, the first few weeks will be social nights to get people back into the swing, hopefully, we will see some new players in this term. In November, the captain John Fitzgerald is planning to run 3 pre Christmas tournaments.
