  • Waterford Invitational 2014

    24/11/2014 Waterford Invitational 2014

    Sun Nov 9th, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford was the place to be. Fifty seven players took part in the 7th Waterford Invitational Competition. From the 10am start to the 6pm finish, players played their hearts out. It was one of the most sporting competitions to be part of. The standard of the matches was top class and the players attitude matched that. Players from Wexford, Waterford, Kerry, Limerick, Cork and Tipperary took part. The competition ran like clockwork, thanks to the players all being so co-operative. A massive thanks to the players who support the competition each year and to those who came for the first time, we hope you will all come again.

  • Munster Juvenile Inter-County Competition

    21/11/2014 Munster Juvenile Inter-County Competition

    The Munster Juvenile Inter-County Competition was held on Saturday 15th November in Killarney's Sports & Leisure Centre.  This competition has grown impressively over the past number of years, and Saturday saw 20 teams from Cork, Clare, Tipperary, Waterford, and Kerry battle it out at U11, U13, U15 and U17 to become Munster Champions and go on to represent their county in the All-Ireland Inter-County Competition in Baldoyle next April.  With almost 200 competitors taking to the courts over the course of the day, the excitement and noise level was high as parents and family watched on from the balcony.  With their team-mates cheering from courtside, every player gave their best for their county. 

    The U11 final was between Tipperary and Cork, with Cork emerging as winners.  The U13 final saw Cork and Kerry compete for the title with Cork edging it.  Cork were clear favourites to take the U15 title but were pushed all the way by Clare while, at U17, Clare prevented a clean sweep by Cork when they won the U17 competition, narrowly defeating Cork in the Final.
