.The Annual Corner House Cup League kicked off on Thursday 3rd February 2022 and ran for 4 weeks culminating in Finals Night on 3rd March 2022.
The Winners of the Corner House Cup were Handy Smurfs - Siobhan, Jack, Kate & Michelle.
The Runners-up were Harmony Smurfs - Steff, Eoghan, Tom & Eimhin
Many Thanks to The Corner House for their generous Sponsorship.
There was a new Event on our Competitions Calendar this year which was run over four Thursday Nights.
The Spin Masters qualified for the Final while The Pandemics and The Boggles faced each other in a Semifinal where The Pandemics were the Victors.
Jack’s Pandemics triumphed in the end over Donal’s Spin Masters in the final. Jack attributed their success to something he brought back from his travels. Donal didn’t mention once his team’s failure being down to his team not getting any semi final practice (he mentioned it 10 times actually!). Many thanks to all the supporters and to Alison for her famous sausage rolls. Roll on the Corner house cup in February.
Our Annual Doubles Tournament in memory of Catherine Mulhare took place on Friday 15th October at 7pm. Twenty-four Members participated in a very enjoyable night.Club Captain Alan tried a new draw format which involved pairing partnerships using a pack of cards. This was widely accepted by all the Participants. Plus, the person who drew the 'Joker' got an extra point towards their score when they wore the specially designed 'Jokers Hat'.
When the scores were counted, the top four ladies and the top four men played off to get their names on the Catherine Mulhare Memorial Trophy.
The Runners-up were
And the winning team was Tom, Emily, Paula and John.
Well done everyone and thanks to Alan for organising.
Amidst all the disappointments and cancellations of recent months, we are very grateful that our annual Closed Tournament is going ahead, starting this Wednesday. Unfortunately, according to the latest health guidelines, there will be no spectators allowed. However, players will be allowed to have a complimentary cup of tea or coffee after their match, and the marquee will be set up in the car park for this purpose. To facilitate this, we are asking for volunteers to do a 2 hour shift in the kitchen to make the tea/coffee, wash up the cups, and to regularly sanitize frequently used touch points. There will be very little to do during the 2 hour shift, so you may have to watch some tennis to pass the time. Only one person per shift is needed. Monday-Friday shifts will begin at 6pm, Saturday at 10am, and Sunday at 6pm due to Summer Cup matches that day. If you would like to volunteer to do a kitchen shift, please contact Aoife. Thanks in advance.
