2016 Irish Masters Nationals.

Storm Gertrude did little to discourage players from traveling to the 2016 Irish Masters Nationals, which took place today at the Lisburn Racquets Club. Heavy snow and wind battered the area for much of the early hours of the morning, but players still arrived in their droves to compete for the Masters Nationals titles. With over 130 games played in just one day many players had to give it their all and should be commended for their efforts, win or lose. 
Here are some, but by no means all, of today’s Irish Masters Nationals highlights.

Men’s Singles:

In the Men’s Singles over 35 Kevin Donnelly took the gold medal over Mohit Katiyar in the final. While in the over 40’s MS, Nigel Boyne saw off stiff competition from number one seed Seamus Halpin to claim the title.
