Senior Open 2018
After a fantastic week of tennis played in glorious sunshine, the rain turned up on cue for finals day on Sunday. Despite the unusual dampness all eleven finals were played and produced a feast of wonderful shot-making for the large crowd of spectators to enjoy along with the hospitality kindly provided by members and friends. At the end of the affair club captain Des Windsor McGlynn expressed the great appreciation of the club to tournament director, Lisa Brennan for yet again organising and running the Open so successfully and he also thanked the competitors from the various clubs for supporting the competition and on the remarkable quality of tennis produced. Results are listed below. See photos in Gallery. Next up is the Longford Senior Open taking place this week with many Athlone players involved. Best of luck to all concerned!
