Senior Club Championships
Quite a few championship matches were played last week with good wins for Sean Raftery, Jeremy Clarke, Pawel Michalski and David Manser in the Men’s Singles and for Julie Costello, Orla Gavin, Jacinta Digby and Laura Hunt in the Ladies’ Singles. The doubles partnerships of Tim Clarke/Peter Agbanobi and Orla Gavin/Richard Frank were also successful in men’s and mixed respectively.
Remember that all those defeated in their first match are entered into the plate. There are several more first round matches yet to be played and members are asked to arrange their next matches (including plate) to keep on track for finals day on Saturday 29th September.
