The finals of our junior club championships took place on Saturday the 29th of August. With 58 entrants it was a busy two weeks for the club and our thanks to all the parents who helped out and made sure that all the matches got played on time. The finals took place on Saturday morning to allow those interested to get home on time to see the Wales versus Ireland rugby match. In the end, the tennis on display turned out to be far more entertaining than the rugby with some spectacular tennis and very tight matches. The excellent coaching provided by our club coaches was in evidence with very strong technique and the young players showed a willingness to play out the point and wait for an opportunity to hit winners rather than going for every shot. This year we had gold, silver and bronze finalists to allow more kids to experience the finals day experience. Jessica Smyth was the winner of the Outstanding Player of The Year award for her enthusiasm, participation and improvement throughout the year.

A huge debt of gratitude is owed to Carol Dillon who did most of the organisation this year and managed to keep everything running perfectly on Saturday. Photos of the prize giving are available by clicking here. The winners and finalists of the 2015 junior club championships were as follows
