Juniors V Seniors

 The first novelty tennis competition between our junior and adult members took place in ideal conditions last Sunday. This interesting event, was the brain child of club chairperson, Lisa Brennan. A representative group of eighteen junior members from under 10 to under 18 took on the challenge and played against a similar representative number of senior members.

 There were nine doubles matches in total, the seniors winning five and the juniors winning the other four. The overall score was seniors 64 points, juniors 55 points.

Many parents and adult members enjoyed excellent, competitive tennis matches. The results indicate that the junior players were no push over, in fact many are looking forward to a similar encounter next year but with a different result.  

 Lisa Brennan was the instigator of this junior/senior event, not only did Lisa organise and coach the junior competitors and cajole senior members to participate, she also bought and presented a perpetual trophy for the occasion.

 Many parents of the junior players helped out to make the day special, there was an ample supply of all sorts of edibles. Deirdre Quilty organised black embroidered t shirts for the juniors while the seniors wore white. One parent wrote on WhatsApp, “It was a fantastic day, well organised and good fun”, credit and thanks to everyone involved.
