A little rain didn’t dampen the moods at the junior tournament held recently on Sunday March 6th at Clonakilty tennis club were there was a good turnout in both the boys and girls sections. The girls went first and they started at 10am and played doubles for almost two hours finishing just short of 2pm in order to present the prizes. The girls winners were Adriana Cullinane and Amy McCarthy in the junior section and Lucy McCarthy and Amy McWeeney in the older section. In the boys section which started at 2pm and went on till 4pm, a mistake was made by making it all one group and so the younger boys had to play the older boys and thus there was only one outcome. I won’t make that mistake again. Nevertheless, the boys winners were Jack McCarthy and Olexander Boiko and the runners up were Gavin Dullea and Ben Quigley. Thanks to the referees, players and parents for some great tennis.
On Sunday morning 28th June at 10am a tennis competition was held for boys and girls at Ballineen and Enniskeane Development Association tennis courts and ran for two hours until 12 midday. There was two groups with a boys and a girls section. The ages ranged from about 8 years of age to about 12. The weather was great and a good day was had by all. Bounce Tennis Academy (BTA) donated all the trophies, medals and supervision to the tournament.
The girls were:
3rd place: Leanne O’Leary
2nd place: Kelise
1st place: Amy McWeeney
A Junior tennis tournament will be held at Ballineen and Enniskeane Tennis courts on Sunday 28th June 2015 for both boys and girls from the age of 7 an over. The cost of entry will be 5 euro. Racquets can be supplied by the coach where needed. We will be using tretorn mid compression tennis balls. The format will most probably be a champions and challengers style and we expect the competition to last for about 2 hours from 10am to 12pm. We will only have the use of the two courts and so it is weather permitting.
