TennisInterfirms 2017 Finals
The semi Finals and finals produced some magnificent tennis at Hillview Interfirms. After 30 participating teams had all played their round robin matches over the preceding fortnight the scene was set for some great encounters. The players did not hold back with some class games coming down to knife edge results. Finally in the D beginners section MSD 2 ( M Sweetman) succumbed to a strident Boston 2 side ( Michel Qvezada) that had grown in confidence throughout the tournament and were worthy winners of this title. While in the C section MSD 1 ( Michael Brady) took the honours from The Family Carers side of Richie Molloy. The B final was a great encounter of GBCC (Yvonne Carolan) and Cass &Co (Dee Garret) with the former pulling off a great result. Onto the A section where Subway 1 team ( Kathleen Deely) pulled out all the stops and defeated the Boston 1 side of Denise McGrath. Last then but not least was the A+ final that wrapped up the tournament for another year. M Ormond (Mary Power) and her team mates took Liam Guilfoyles Garage ( Ian Murphy) all the way by drawing in sets but winning on games.
At the prize giving ceremony Frank Darrer “Tournament Director” paid tribute to all the participants and thanked the Hillview tennis committee for the great work they had done in running the competition and a special thanks to the main sponsors MSD and Quality Recycling.
The competitive badminton season in Hillview is drawing to a close. It was a very successful season with teams in both the Tipperary Cup and League. To finish off the season the club organised the Seamus O'Doherty Cup Team League as a thank you to Seamus the Club President for all his hard work and support with badminton.
