2012 Munster Junior Clay Court Open Championship a great Success
|27/Jun/2012||(No Expiry Date)||There was a huge entry for the 2012 Munster Junior Clay Court Open Championships at the County last week. |
It was a tremendous team effort by all the club members ranging from the Courts Team, the Pavillion and Catering Team, the Tournament Office Team, the sponsorship which was generously provided by the members of the County, and all under the auspices of the inspiring Tournament Director, Sandra Russell and President Anne Bourke.
The tournament opened on sunny Sunday morning, June 17th. The teamwork theme pervaded onto the courts as the opening event, the Under 8's Round Robin, was run as a team event, which added to the fun and participation of the youngest players.
The Under 9's competitions were also run in the round robin format, thus guaranteeing at least four matches for each competitor, again a team event which added to the camaraderie and inclusion of all the children taking part.
It was down to business also from Sunday morning for the older players who played superb tennis and demonstrated immense sportsmanship throughout the week. In her closing presentation and address on Saturday afternoon, June 23rd, President Bourke congratulated all the players from far and near, and junior members of the club, praising the incredibly high standard of tennis which made the Championship a highly competitive event. She thanked the members of the County for their help with and sponsorship of the tournament, and she paid special tribute to Director Sandra Russell, and her team, for making it a happy and successful tournament. She also thanked the local tennis clubs for their cooperation.
Upcoming events to suit everyone's fancy at the County will include a Musical Evening on Saturday June 30th at 8pm, and the rescheduled Cake Sale and Coffee Morning which will now take place on Sunday, July 8th, from 10am to 1pm.
