2011 Under 14 DAY CUP

The Monkstown LTC Under 14 Day Cup took place on the 22 of August. This was the first time Monkstown LTC hosted this event. The teams who participated were Shankill, Naas, Riverview, Carrickmines, Greystones, Donnybrook and two Monkstown LTC teams. It ran from 12 to 5 and we all had great fun.

The format was 3 doubles pairings on each team and the teams were split into 2 round robin groups. In the first group there was Carrickmines, Shankill, Riverview and Monkstown LTC 1 teams.  In the second group there was Greystones, Naas, Donnybrook and Monkstown LTC 2. We had to play a doubles match which was the best of 8 games, you played 7 games and a tie-break.

Monkstown LTC 1 played Donnybrook in the semi final, Naas played Riverview.  All the matches were really close but in the end we won, so did Naas.

The final was then between Naas and Monkstown LTC 1. Julie Byrne, Kate Grennan, Julie Ryan, Fergus O’Rourke, Jerome Doyle and Rex Lloyd were on the Monkstown 1 team. Naas won overall in the end. We all then had pizza and everyone had a great day!
