Halloween Spooky Tennis
Our initial mixed doubles Halloween spooky tennis event organised by Marek Rose was well supported and a great success. Deirdre Cox partnered Marek and competed successfully on the night. Sine Mcfarlane and Jimmy Raleigh were also a formidable combination while Laura O Cluaid and John Galvin were very competitive. The Mary Jo O’ Farrell/Kieran Mc Carthy, Rose and Dave Costello pairings were also in the points, the latter winning on scariness.
