Stars & Stripes U14 Spring Tournament – Final


Monkstown LTC finish Runners up in U14 Stars and Stripes


The u14 final in the club on Saturday evening was very well attended with strong support for both the Blackrock and Monkstown LTC teams. It was Blackrock’s night with their girls in particular performing very strongly. As was the case in last year’s final the matches were generally very close and the standard of tennis was very good and much appreciated by the supporters of both teams.

Girls Blackrock won 39-13
No 1 Singles: Sarah Healy – lost 9-4
No 2 Singles: Rachel Norton – lost 9-4
No 1 Doubles: Julie Ringrose and Lucy Coulter Smith – lost 12-1
No 2 Doubles: Sarah Magee and Caoimhe Byrne – lost 9-4


Boys 26 all draw

No 2 Singles: David Keane – won 7-6
No 1 Doubles: Harry Shaw and Greg O’Carroll – lost 12-1
No 2 Doubles: Patrick Byrne and James McCabe – won 8-5


Overall result: Blackrock 65 Monkstown LTC 39


We had the presentation in the clubhouse afterwards and were joined by Glenageary who won the shield, Newtown Park who were runners up and a couple of other representatives. We raised €260 for Goal between the raffle and contribution from the entry fees so many thanks to all who supported it.

Many thanks as always to the parents who helped out on the night and throughout the competition – especially Eileen Healy who did such a great job with the girls team.


See you all in the Autumn !!!
