Bray People - - SPORT -

THE FI­NALS of the Con­way Me­dia Hand­i­cap Cham­pi­onships held at Wick­low Ten­nis Club last Thurs­day took place un­der per­fect weather con­di­tions for the com­peti­tors and fans alike.

Four fi­nals took place on the night - the men’s and ladies sin­gles and the men’s and mixed dou­bles. The ladies dou­bles fi­nal had taken place the pre­vi­ous Thurs­day.

The mixed dou­bles fi­nal proved a par­tic­u­larly en­thralling en­counter and took over two and a half hours be­fore Carol Byrne and Will Good­body man­aged to edge out Brian Speak­man and Brian Fan­ning.

Kier­nan Scott de­feated Mark Red­mond in the men’s sin­gles and Áine Tee­van beat Naoise Gal­lagher in the ladies fi­nal. Carol Byrne and Marie Haughton were the ladies dou­bles cham­pi­ons af­ter their vic­tory over Áine Tee­van and Karen O’Sul­li­van. Ing­vard Ton­nies and Peter Fin­negan de­feated Ken O’Dwyer and Ray Mo­ran in the men’s dou­bles fi­nals.

Dur­ing the prize pre­sen­ta­tions, Club Pres­i­dent Robert Earls wel­comed Paula Con­way of Con­way Me­dia and thanked her for their con­tin­ued sup­port in spon­sor­ing this very pop­u­lar event each year. Kieran Leggett, tour­na­ment co-or­di­na­tor, thanked all the tour­na­ment com­mit­tee who en­sured the com­pe­ti­tion ran smoothly.

Af­ter­wards re­fresh­ments were sup­plied by Ellen Sin­nott of Di­a­mond Bowl and Kid­zone.
