Organisers Marianne Johnson, Brian Meade and Mary McGowan breathed long sighs of relief when Friday the 26th of May proved to be a rare warm and sunny day in May. The last thing they wanted was rain, with 48 players (plus spectators) from 8 different tennis clubs around Dublin coming to play off a Stars & Stripes junior doubles event in the one evening. Despite some late arrivals due to rush hour traffic and players ending up in the wrong club, the event started almost on schedule and ran with military precision thereafter. Marianne’s mathematical genius managed to ensure that no court was ever idle throughout the evening and no players were left without a game for more than 20 minutes.

Leopardstown girls Robyn Kos and Leila Johnson were finalists in the girls doubles event while Stephen Conroy & Aiden Carolan (boys doubles) and Philip Johnston & Eibhlin Meade (mixed doubles) also acquitted themselves well.
